    N where are the speakers located on the MBP 13".Its not on the sides of the keyboard as on 15 inch and the 17 inch model i guess?

    I believe the speakers are located underneath the keyboard.

    The right speaker and subwoofer seem to run along around the slot for the Superdrive.

    Dunno where the left speaker is, probably in a mirror image position.

    So I think they're broadly in the same place as on the 15", just no speaker grilles.

    The sound is good, much better than my old white MB. More bass and louder. Can't comment on how they compare with the 15" however, but I'd guess quite similar.

    The speakers on the new 13" MBP are certainly not bad, but they are definitely inferior to the 15". They are not as loud and for example with some youtube videos even with all volumes turned up to maximum it can be hard to hear.

    They're underneath the keyboard so there are no speaker grills, the sound quality is OK for a laptop it's size, however not on a par with the 15"

    Go in a Apple store when it's quite and have a play.
