    I currently have a 15" rMBP, and am considering picking up a maxed 12" MBP, just for the convenience of being so portable.

    So for you guys who have, or considered downsizing, what are the pros and cons.

    Thank you

    Done it. Yeah it's great. Don't miss the bulk.

    Moved from an i7 16gb 756gb 2012 MBP to a Macbook 2016 m5,8gb,512gb.

    Haven't regretted it a second, its runs windows 10 in parallels perfectly well (need this for my job), and love the new keyboard, so much faster for me, like touch typing on a iPad.

    You might as well try it and see for yourself for a week, worse case you have a 14 days return period.

    Just downsized from a 15 that I bought a few days ago. Returned it the day after I had to carry it around for a day. This thing is incredible so far. Installed QuickRes and LOVING it.

    Try traveling around with that. Did a month long vacation traveling around Japan lugging that MBP around from train to train and hiking around. Never again i'll bring something that heavy.

    I have a 15-inch rMBP that I keep on my desk, connected to a CalDigit TB2 dock and 28-inch Samsung 4K monitor. The rMB has become my travel buddy and what I use when I'm moving around the house; the 15 is pretty much turned in to a "desktop" now.
