    I was thinking (which is dangerous) that with the 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that there are probably people whose phone has more storage than their PC..

    What say you 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners. Does your phone have more storage than your PC or Mac SSD has?

    Anyone having 128GB or less hard drive capacity on their PC is scary.

    Didn't a lot of the Macbook Air's come with less?

    I know the new standard base model is 128GB but was it not 64GB just a few years ago?

    Well if we are talking SSD then not really. My wife's Chromebook has 32GB (which is a lot for a Chromebook).


    Sent using an iPhone 6 Plus 128GB on AT&T.

    Yes I should have specified in the OP that I was referring to PC/Mac's with SSD..

    I had a Chromebook Pixel LTE that only had 64GB and I could have swore I had a Macbook Air a few years ago that only had 64GB, but I could be wrong there.. It was a 2012 Air I think..

    I was speaking of desktop hard drive capacity in general. I have over 5TB of hard drive capacity, including a 256GB SSD, but that's probably a bit more than the average user.

    Yeah I have a TB of Google Drive that expires next year (my Pixel came with 3-years free) but I recently (today) got an upgrade to unlimited storage on OneDrive with my office 365 subscription..

    As far as SSD goes, I have 256 on my Macbook which I find to be plenty all things considered..

    I've got a PC running Win Server 2003 (it's solid, no problems whatsoever since I've set it up), that's got a 64gb SSD inside with a 2TB HD (powered) plugged in for home media and pictures etc.

    I'm currently in the process of moving, bought a run down property which I'm doing up and I'm really looking forward to getting my house networked. I've picked up a couple of Kingston SSD's 128gb each - got eight so far. Trying to decide whether or not to go RAID or just go for multiple NAS drives. I've got a network switch which I'll be utilising for work based controls projects, hence the NAS (I'll have quite a few spare ports) - probably overkill, but I like the redundancy.

    That probably came off more aggressive than I meant it to. I'm really tired right now.

    Of course! But a few are stand-alone too. :)
