    Hey so right now I’m using a 13 inch MacBook Pro for school and I’m studying computer science and I’m considering getting a 15” 2018 MacBook Pro for school now mainly because I’m low on storage but I’m just wondering if a 13 inch MBP would still be good enough for this?

    A 2018 13 inch with the i7 would be good ?

    The biggest difference I can think of is that the 15" has a higher end than the 13". Other than that it's just personal preference on screen size.

    There are a good deal of programmers / developers in my office and with the exception of using a couple of large monitors, most of them seem to be using a 13” laptop.

    Anyway, to answer your question, yes, a 13” MacBook Pro should be sufficient for your needs, in my opinion.

    I used to love the 15” laptops years back, but now anymore. The portability of the 13” is more important to me these days.

    I see well that matters to me a lot to so I guess I’ll get the 13 inch

    For me the 13" MacBook Pro is perfect. It's really personal preference in my opinion. Now specs would make a difference.

    In the past I always chose the 13". But when Apple released the new design I opted for the 15" because of the reduced footprint and weight. I don't think I could go back now as I love the increased size of the screen and to me its still very portable.

    I guess it would depend on weight and eyesight. If you're using an external monitor, the 13" would work. I personally would get the 15" just for my eyesight.
