I currently have a Dell XPS 13-inch that is four years old and the nvidia graphics card is just about crapped out (I have had the screen with just all lines, but able to get it to work again to back up all of my stuff). So I am used to a 13-inch screen, but something is making me think about the 15-inch MacBook pro. Retina is not important to me. I'm switching to a MacBook because I have an iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (had this before I got the iPhone). A dedicated graphics card is not important to me. I bought the XPS because I got an awesome deal. I like the size of the 13-inch, but wonder if I should get something bigger since I don't take the laptop out much now with the iPad. I do like the price of the 13-inch base model better (of course). Yes I know, it's up to me and no one can make the decision for me, I guess I'm just looking for some thoughts. The only stuff I'll be doing on the MacBook would be some word processing, spreadsheet stuff, minor photo editing (personal use), and internet. I don't play computer games.
