    Are there any videos or photos of the size comparison of the 2015 vs the new 2016s of the 15 inchers. I went to apple today and they had the nMBP 13" w/o touch bar and man is that thing light. It makes my current 2015 13" seems like a brick!
    I normally like the smaller one for travel reason. But as a video editor, I could always use the dGPU and quad core chips. With the new ones being lighter, i wonder if I could suffer for the size. But this won't be my main computer just a portable for quick edits etc.

    Yes, I'd like to see this comparison as well. I wanna see how much they were able to shave off.

    I've been wondering about this too. I'm upgrading from an 11" MBA and am torn between the portability of the 13" v the bigger screen size of the 15". The 15" MBPs I've seen were pretty big beasts to cart around and use on the move, but could I get away with a 15" and no external monitor?

    Or am I just kidding myself and I'll end up with a nice big external 27" screen anyway...

    15" screen is the limiting factor.
    0.95 x 14.35 x 9.82
    0.71 x 14.13 x 9.73
    0.61 x 13.75 x 9.48

    Delta cMBP vs tMBP
    0.34 x 0.6 x 0.34

    Delta rMBP vs tMBP
    0.1 x 0.38 x 0.25

    13" vs 15" big difference in portability.
    13" w/ 24"-32" 4k monitor vs 15" big difference is usability.

    If you've been using an 11-inch MacBook Air, you obviously don't need the performance of the 15-inch, so I would definitely get the 13-inch and an external monitor. I only ordered the 15-inch because the additional performance is of benefit to me, and I only take it with me when I need to do something my iPad Pro can't handle. You're still getting a larger display on the go than what you have.
