If you’re afraid that 256GB won’t be enough room, you could always pop an extra 64GB-256GB in this Mac with one of Transcend’s JetDrive Lite Expansion Cards. Prices range from $35 to $155. Your savings would easily cover that added cost. Or if you’re looking for external storage, Transcend’s high-performance Portable Thunderbolt Drives are currently on sale.

When we designed MacBook Pro with Retina display, we started with a blank slate. That gave us the freedom to imagine something radical, something entirely different. A notebook so thin, so light, and so powerful it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. A notebook designed for the future, but ready to use today.
