    Default Mac Book Pro 13" or 17"

    Is the extra screen real estate worth the money?

    if you got a PC and a smart phone, 15 is the right choice buddy. Go to a mac store and check it out your self.

    15" is perfect. I find the 17" a little too big to be portable but it has the bonus of 3 USB ports which is very nice if you have controllers.

    I got a 17" and while it is a little big, its still portable. I lug mine to London and back every week along with my work ThinkPad and Twitch.

    13"

    If you need a big screen, man up and buy a 27" external screen in addition.

    15" any day unless your after ultra portability with something like an Air as you cant get a 15" unfortunately. if it's 13" or 17" and nothing else it'd be the 13" just because the i'd struggle to find room in most dj booths for a 17"

    Sorry what I mean to say was the 13 or 15. The 17 would be nice but I don't have that kind of money. I'll be putting a lot down just for the low end 15" and that before I add anything.

    I'm gona wait for the imminent Macbook refreshes that should be coming out soon.
