    I'm able to invest in my first mba and am having trouble deciding between the 11 or the 13 inches

    I'm did a search on this forum about the mba and photoshop..but most of the threads are about whether the mba is capable of running CS5. Now i know it is but i want to know how are people coping with using photoshop on the 11 vs the 13. Screen real estate speaking.

    It is really cramp on the 11"? are tool bars and menu really cramp on screen. Eye strain??? I just do some retouching.. mostly resizing of photo files and also imovie.

    I LOVE the form factor of the 11 but it seems 13 is a better choice....

    What is your experience? 11 vs 13. THank you.

    I couldn't do it on an 11". I did ok on 13" but always found myself plugging into my external display for more screen real estate. If you're thinking you'll never use an external display then I'd go with the 13".
