    Default What macbook should I get?

    Hey guys, I've been considering getting a macbook pro, but I can't decide if I need the 15.4 " or if the 13,3" is enough. Does the macbook 13,3" work fine with Traktor 2 or is it worth considering 15.4"?

    Please help me sort my mind out.

    Best regards, Jack H.

    use a 13.3 with no issues.. the 15 is to big to preform with imo.. if u need/want more screen space use the money saved to by a nice external monitor to use at home..

    i have the early 13" 2011 MacBook Pro and it works great. Have never had a problem.

    Sometimes I wish I had a little more screen real estate, but I don't think 2 more inches is worth the difference in price.

    I had a 15 and it was great. I felt 13 was just too small. I mean now I have a 17" and its awesome, but 15 is probably the best size imo.

    Or get a macbook air 13.3...

    13" here.

    I wish they came smaller. Unlike with dicks, laptop thickness (within reason) isn't nearly the issue that Apple seems to think it is. I want an 11 or 12" screen on a real laptop.

    Having a 24" (or whatever) display at home has made me want a smaller laptop…15" is way to big to carry, 13" is too small not to want a real screen at home…there's no happy medium, and I think portability is more important.

    If you're worried about performance differences between models, don't.
