When Was the Last Time You Checked Your Laptop Storage?

Seems it was several years ago that I subscribed to extra storage in iCloud and increased my storage capacity of Dropbox. What I didn't realize is iCloud mirrors your computer and uses space on your computer. So does Dropbox, because Dropbox works like a folder. The only way to save space with Dropbox is to use "selective sync" and unsync files from specific computers. Which sort of defeats its purpose.

In any case, I thought I had fixed my storage capacity issue on my MacBook Pro. Instead I bought a little bit of time. Became clear when I checked my storage on my laptop a few days ago. You can check your storage capacity on a Mac laptop by:

  1. Clicking the Apple
  2. Select drop down menu to About This Mac
  3. Click on the "storage" tab

I am operating on less than 10% available. Not good. So I finally said screw it, I'm buying a 1.5 TB on a MacBook Air. I need all of my information readily accessible at the drop of a phone call wherever I may be in the world, which is why an external hard drive will not work.

That's when I learned there are all sorts of benefits to the brand new MacBook Air. Thought I would share these with you,

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Have You Checked Out the New MacBook Air?
