    I'm going to college soon would like to get a macbook pro.

    Some people say that 13.3 is too small for them and that the larger screen is better. However, i wonder if portability will be better with a smaller screen.

    if a 13.3 inch mbp came out after june 11, would you guys get the original size mbp or a 13.3 inch one? And why?

    i just ordered online for my mbp but it hasn't shipped yet, i think im going to cancel the order and wait till june 11.

    what do you guys think?

    assuming the 13.3 inch MBP is fully featured with full power i would prefer the 13.3 inch + an external 20" screen. especially if it's cheaper than the 15.4 inch MBP (the powerbook 12" used to be cheaper).

    if the 13.3 inch MBP is a ultraportable with less performance and features I would only buy it if i could afford an iMac or Macpro for at home.

    my guess is that apple either releases an ultraportable at WWDC (unlikely) or no notebook for the next 4 month (likely).
