    I am deciding if I should return my best buy macbook pro 15 inch that I just bought last week. There was a deal for 200$ off and another 10% coupon. It brought it down to 1600ish before taxes. Loving the real screen estate but debating if I should get the newly refreshed 13 inch rmbp with the longer battery and the new tech? I'll mainly use this as a main notebook for my graduate program. Advice? Im leaning towards to just keeping the 15inch, but not sure if I'll have buyers remorse.

    I'd only return it if the size bothers you. I'm happy with my 15" Haswell rMBP but I'm never buying another 15" MacBook.

    Keep the 15 if you don't mind the size. It's a much more powerful computer.

    I returned my 15" and bought the previous 13"..

    This is the first time I chose a 13 over a 15 - and I think the 13 this release is very underrated.

    Do you actually use the quad core? In the number of years I've owned a quad, I've only got use of it in converting files,,even for audio recording, I think it was severely underused for my needs. The 13" handles Logic Pro very well, so I don't see a need for it with that.

    16 gigs is nice, but I've never felt 8 gigs was a bottle neck.

    I sold my iPad, so portability is my number one concern - and having used both - the 13 wins hands down.

    I bought a nice slipcase for it, and in comparison to the 15 in a slipcase - it's so much easier to carry!

    I price matched the 13 256 gigs with bhpphoto ..it was $1399 and best buy matched it. The only update I was interested in was the increase in battery life, but I already get 10 hours with it so it's not a main concern. Id rather the $100 off..
