They do have that model, but I think the 128gb SSD should be enough for OS and programs, he has a 2tb USB 3.0 external that he keeps all his files and media on, so that's why I'm not concerned about dropping the processor for a little more storage. I figure I might as well just give him an i7 like his old man

Please adopt me T_T :P
Anyway yeah, if he's got an external then just the 128GB should be fine, particularly since it's USB3 (i.e. good for VMs).
