I've been thinking about getting a MacBook...it would be super handy to have a laptop that I can throw all of my music software on and carry with me everywhere. But considering how expensive my current computer was, I'll have to wait.

I'm not a big fan of TB drives to be honest. Just more data to lose.

Just tell me you arent getting an external TB. Because that's a waste of money. Externals are terrible. I will never buy another.

A script on this page has stopped working due to low memory available.

I assume I'm the only one getting this ?

Looks like it. Let me know if it persists.

I've had too many bad experiences. Internals are cheaper and it's as easy as buying a cheap case if you decide to want to use it externally down the road.

Oh wait, yeah, this is your end. You're running too many programs or your local cache is too full. You're out of memory.

yeah agreed. I have a 640 for media but I'm buying another one for back-up.

I'd buy a TB drive if it was a high quality one (a Raptor maybe idk) and I'd only use it for back-ups. As a failsafe, sure, but never rely on massive drives.

whenever I come into some money I'm going to get a velociraptor or some **** just to run my os on, and use my TB for storage so it's not in constant use.
