    Hi guys, I have a big dilemma, I received my rMBP 13 i7/2.8/8/256 coming from a 15-inch PC, and I just found that by adding 180euros I can have the 15-inch i7/2.0/8/256 with the Iris Pro and Quad Core.

    I'm computer engineering student, all I need is to code, compile, some VMs, safari, watching HD movies but rarely playing video games.

    So what do you think ? Is it worth to add 180e for the Iris Pro and the Quad Core ? or I just keep my 13-inch that I find very convenient and portable ? is there a big difference between the Iris and Iris Pro, the CPU Cores ?

    Thank you =)

    Biggest and noticeable differences are;

    1. Dual-core vs Quad-Core
    2. Iris vs Iris Pro
    3. Speakers

    IF thats is worth the cost upgrade do it. 15" is a faster machine, if you don't need faster, save the money, especially since the 13" portability is something you love and enjoy.
