Typically you won't need 16GB of RAM for almost anything. Even graphics designers, games devs, etc, don't need that much. It all depends on what you do.

I'd go for the bigger SSD almost always.

Your Mac's Specs
2011 17" MBP 2.2ghz, 16gig ram, OS 10.11.6
Given the two choices…I would probably go the same direction (8gig ram, 256 SSD). Most folks don't need more than 8gig if ram. If the 128gig of storage option was chosen…you might find the storage filling up too quickly.

But…if you are really good at managing the storage on the computer (not storing lots of stuff/junk on the computer)…16gig of ram would be better for the future (if you were to keep this computer for 3-5 years). The ram is 100% NOT upgradeable. The storage "may" be upgradeable (3rd party folks working on solutions).
