    I'll try keep this short, don't want to bore you.

    I don't know if I should be getting a 15" or 13" MBP. I'm a Multimedia student and we do a lot of Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash and After Effects work. But we also do some 3D Modelling in 3rd year. (1st year currently). I won't be doing any extremely heavy work, I just want to be able to run 3DS Max reasonably well (Just smooth enough so that I'm not getting frustrated with it). I don't mind about rendering times, I just don't want jittering/slow downs when using the software.

    I did google this and only found older threads that don't really relate to the current models of the MBP.

    I'm not restricted by a budget but why spend more than you need to? lol

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    For your needs, definitely go for the 15". But if I were you, I'd wait until the Broadwell/Skylake 15" ones come out, because the current generation's 750M GPU is already pretty ancient by today's standards, and judging from what you do, it looks like the dGPU is going to be really useful.
