The screen gamuts on the macbook pros are the best on the market. For PS and whatever design programs (AI or whatever) any of them will do. Static imagery is low resource draw. If you’re doing any motion or video get the 15” and throw in a GPU upgrade.

If you’re just doing PS and AI they’ll be totally fine man. If you’re gonna get into AE or FCPX you’ll probably want the 15.

Ah nonono
Just ps.
Anyway its normal for a macbook to stay at 50celsius temperature in idle?
I had a 13 inch noteboock in the past, that in idle was on 30celsius and maximun 70

I can't say about the 13 because though I've played with it, I don't own and use one every day. But the 15 inches are ice cold in PS.

The screens are fine on those machines, but you're dealing with a 13" form factor and imo, that's too small to do work in PS. Also consider the keyboard on 2016/2017 models - its a known defect
