    Hej

    I am considering to buy a MacBook Pro. I am hesitating between the maxes out 13” with i7 or the 2,9GHz 15” with i7.
    Both with 16GB RAM.
    I do some visual work but have lots of tabs and windows open to manage my company.
    Size wise the 13” is nice for carrying but would not give up power for that.
    Can you please advise and explain?

    Thank you so much

    Personally, I’d go with the more portable 13” MBP, but it boils down to ‘your’ preference of screen size. The 13”, in my opinion, is the perfect size for a laptop, but that’s Just Me, D...

    I had looked at the 13” but it was about the same size as the 12.9” iPad Pro that I had just sold. I went with the 15” that your looking at. Been happy ever since.

    It's really a personal preference. I went with 13" MBP because that was the best size to fit MY lifestyle.

    As did I. Although the 15" would be GREAT I find the 13" to be a nice size for my needs, especially since I need to be mobile. I finally parted ways with my trusty 2012 MBA and snagged a 13" 2015 MBP in excellent condition, to stave off "dongle life" for a few more years. And with Retina I won't have to squint at my screen....

    With the 13 inch now having a Quad core CPU I would say get the 13 inch. The hexa core cpu is nice to have but TBH unless you have some massive cpu intensive task a Quad Core i7 in the 13 will do the job especially with 16GB of DDR4 Memory.

    Wouldn't the Air screen be better if you don't want to squint since the lower resolution would be bigger? lol

    LOL! Actually the higher resolution makes everything much clearer, and I don’t need to hunt for my glasses.....
