So, the time has come to replace my mid-2012 MacBook Pro. When I purchased this laptop four years ago I paid extra for the 1TB internal drive upgrade; a couple of years later I upgraded again to a 2TB internal drive. Now I am looking for a newer laptop, and I am frustrated to find that there seems to be no way to get anywhere close to that kind of storage in a newer (post-2013) MBP. The largest size SSD I can find is a 1TB upgrade, and that is prohibitively expensive.
I know people love the SSDs because they are faster, smaller and lighter. But surely I am not the only user who values capacity over speed -- right? What do people do if they need more storage with the newer laptops?
(I recognize that the only real answers may just be "Don't buy a newer laptop" or "Wait for Moore's Law to catch up with your needs." I'd prefer a more practical solution.)
Edited: Regarding "Wait for Moore's Law to catch up with your needs", it looks like that may be happening already, as SanDisk has just announced (September 20, 2016) a prototype 1 TB SD card: http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2016/9/20/12986234/biggest-sd-card-1-terabyte-sandisk.
