Just Purchased a 13" mba absolutely nothing wrong with it except the tiny creaks being that its so thin.Portability isnt an issue with me so i feel i should have went with maybe a 15" pro. I love how fast the ssd is, my question is do any of u know if the 15" will be that much more sturdy(build wise) and is the speed a big difference with the HDD instead of ssd? Any input will be highly appreciative thank you:)

You will gain better CPU and GPU performance, but a HDD is much slower than a SSD.

You could always install a 3rd party SSD in a 13" or 15" with ease however.

lol was JUST reading the specs on the 15 ur def. right lol 5.6 lbs is almost double the airs weight lol
i mean if u want a more powerful ccomputer to more heavy intensive tasks then go for it, but whatever ur doing and ur happy witht he airs performance, why change something that works he?
