    Had an interesting thought today. I've had my 13'' rMBP for a year now, and I really love it. But sometimes, I find myself wanting the 15'' (I came from a 201l 15'' MBP) for the added power, especially due to the interface lag with running at 1440x900 HiDPI. Does anyone else find this to be true? Or do you have a 15'' and wish you had a 13''?

    Kind of, I bought my 15" for the power, and I want the 13" for the form factor. I just love the look and feel of the 13" without the speaker grills. I just wish it had quad core and a dGPU, then it would be perrrfect! I may just get a 13" as my main one and use my 15" only where needed.

    I will have to wait until Skylake for my next upgrade but it will be the 15 inch. Reason is worsening eye site, not to mention quad core is offered. ;) 13 inch is OK but now I have learned my lesson.

    I had the same dilemma..I have a year old Macbook Pro 13" 8 GB ram 256 SSD..but was looking and wanted to treat myself...I don't need a 15"...since it doesn't leave my desk but I wanted it with the quad core i7 processor and 16 GB of ram...so I had been saving some money and I went out and bout it just for the screen if anything..I love it..it boots in 7 seconds and looks gorgeous...I`m happy I did...I got the entry model since its over kill for me anyways..I do my work on my 27" iMac...but this is just for fun..you only live once..good luck

    My DH one of the original 13" rMBP and my college age son has am 11" Macbook Air. I knew that both of those screens are too small for me. Even so, I looked at the 13" rMBP long and hard but I went with the 15" for the extra screen real estate and more robust hardware.

    I love the 15" . Wife had a 13" and it was really lap-able but just not nice enough screen for me.

    What I really like is actually the 13" MBA's keys. I prefer them to the MBP's.
