    Price difference after tax is about $350ish.

    I like the idea of force touch trackpad, and the 10 hr battery vs 8 hr, but the processor seems significantly better in the 15 inch.

    GPU area was confusing to me, as it's Iris Pro vs Iris 6100. Not sure which is better.

    I'll be getting whichever computer in 16GB RAM, $1579 256GB SSD, 16GB RAM 13 inch, same configuration in 15 inch is $1899, but yields a better processor.

    I plan to use the laptop for occasional once a week video editing (using a dedicated pc for some work), email, browser multitasking, and running RDP.

    I should probably mention the files I edit are from a GH4 in 4k.

    15" all the way. Quad-core vs dual-core.

    $1799 from B&H with no tax.

    Oh wow that is quite nice. Sucks that I'm restricted to Apple.com :(. I forgot to mention I use the customize to order option at apple.com, as it allows me to get any Mac with a Japanese/Hiragana keyboard with Romaji (English) characters on it. Sort of like a 2 in 1 keyboard (Hiragana and English) for no extra charge.

    Iris Pro is better. 6100 is newer but barely any faster than the 5100. Iris Pro makes a big difference with its edram. 70% faster than 5100.

    Well....I sorta ended up getting a RMBP 15inch w/ 750M ;(. What sold me was the used price for it, $1845. Also the higher end 15 inch has a 2.5Ghz i7 4870HQ, which is like 92% as quick as my PC's 4770k according to CPUBoss and CPU-world.
