    First time I will go to the 15" based model but I may not use it much for gaming. For me I just use the CS5 stuff. Rarely for photo or VDO editing. I plan to use DreamWeaver (frequent), do some programming, wanna learn writing iOS Apps, surf the net, listen to music, watch vdo, do documents, and do research. I hesitate to choose the 15 model because of these reasons. It will be my first macbook and I plan not to buy it for long time. Should I go to the 15" based model?

    Thanks in advance.

    Why not wait until you're closer to buying? Newer models and their pending differences might might it an easier choice by then.

    I never buy base of anything. Sadly, I am also broke.

    15 for sure. More space. Gpu acceleration. Quad core processor. And it will stay "relavent" longer.

    I bought a 13 MB a couple years ago and I had the RAM upgrade (from 2g to 4) and it still performs as well as any newer MBA or MBP I've used. I use mine for a lot of casual use (on it 6+ hrs a day) and music and sound recording/editing and a little video editing and CAD. It definitely has had its use. I think if you are looking for it to last a while, you might want to put some upgrades in it. But simple things like the RAM or getting a SSD can be upgraded later when it is needed more. Remember that a Mac base comes with about the same as a higher end PC notebook...
