What is your favorite laptop size?
17" Screen. Don't settle for less. Or at least not willingly.
My vote is for a 13 as I use my Macbook as my main computer with an external monitor and keyboard. When I travel, the 13 is easier to carry and I don't use it for hours at a time. Works for me. Your mileage will vary.
These types of threads are useless.
Does it feel weird to bring a 15.4" laptop to coffee shop like starbucks? Most ppl I see always bring 13-inchers
Who cares what most people have, especially if you have a couple inches more than they do?
I voted the 11". That zero was looking lonely.
It's not the size of the boat; it's the motion in the ocean
Seriously though, I prefer 15" just because 17 is neat but kinda too big for the whole laptop thing and the 13 just feels too small. Of course ask a question like that and 10 people will probably give 10 different answers
Seems like the majority of u are happy with the 15 inch
It's definitely the sweet spot between the 13 and 17.
Apple doesn't make 17" laptops anymore, so the choices are 1115.
I think if you do a lot of work and need a 17", the 15" is super nice and you just need to get an external display and plug it in when you get home. A 17" is a bit too heavy to lug around and most of my friends who are designers definitely complain after they get the 17".
I don't think that there is a "be-all, end-all" best size answer that works for everyone. Everyone has different needs and what may work for one person may not necessarily work for another.
With that said though, I will try to spur on the discussion a bit more by saying that I believe that a 13" or 11" Air would be great for someone who had a dedicated desktop machine. On the flip side something like the 15" rMBP or cMBP would be a great solution for someone who only owned one computer.
We'll let this statement sit for a while...
And on topic - I selected a 15" for my studies. I didn't regret it since a gamed a lot on it, but if I haven't been a gamer, a 12-13" model would have been much preferred.
Interesting that the 17" remains very much niche. I have not exactly caved in to the 15" rMBP as yet, but I have been hands on with it, and I've also put out a feeler as to the value of my current MBP 17"
The retina display may compensate for the loss in real-estate, but I'm still sort of on the fence....So I voted 17"
I would've loved a 14.1" version of the rMBP with the internals of the 15.6
But, otherwise, the 15" is perfect!
I feel a perfect 14" would be great for travelling!
best consumer product award goes to......
15" only because of the introduction of the retina technology to notebooks, laptop is totally the wrong term for it cos you'd never use these on your lap, not good if you plan on having kids right? right.
17" is the Mother of all notebooks because the MacBook Pro is for PROSumers standard, ultimate size, you don't pick this up if you're just wanting to look good at a cafe, you'll look stupid or dramatic for sure. Show off !! Plus cafes are for socializing or relaxation, for those who have notebooks at cafes - man - lame-O ! Grow some muscles and quit whining about "lugging and weight", get over it.
The Cafe was just an example. How about school or the library?
Without spending a lot of time using all of those screen sizes, I really like 13.3". 12" was a little too small for me, and 17" is nice but much too hard to carry. 15" sounds like a good compromise but why compromise when 13.3" has plenty of screen area and great portability?
If the 13' Retina had a discrete graphics card it would be the ultimate portable. It is a great form factor.
But if you are working on any design, video, photo, or creative work it's got to be 15' or bigger.
I like being portable,
