    Hey guys

    So what should it be? I'm going to buy soon and I'm not sure what is the better buy.

    I'm leaning towards the 15" because it is more future proof, but I'm concerned with the Intel GMA HD. I want to get decent battery life, but I don't want basic animations in OSX to stutter.

    I've also heard reports of very hot Core i5 MBP's. Can anyone shed any light on this?

    Has anyone had this decision to make also?

    Cheers.

    Intel HD graphics isn't too bad; I'm using it right now and everything works great; no stuttering or lag whatsoever.

    When I opened up Photoshop the computer switched to the Nvidia GT330M immediately… it was seamless.

    As with temperature, my computer is 41ºC and fans are at default of 2000RPM.

    get the 15 because the 13 has old ass core 2 duo and the 15 has i5 with wicked 330m graphics so you can watch 10 porn videos at the same time with no lag
