    The 15" MBP will do much better due to the dedicated GPU, which is absent from the 13" MBP. But I don't know the specs of Diablo 3, if it ever comes out, but the higher GPU (AMD Radeon HD 6750M) might be better suited for that.
    But Aperture can live with the 13" MBP's GPU.

    Maybe a more descriptive thread title could also help finding more responses, as yours is quite "broad".
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.

    It would run fine on the 13" however as stated above, the best choice is the 15" with the dedicated GPU.

    That depends on the size of your images and if they are in RAW format or something smaller. But I prefer Lightroom, as Aperture was very slow for my 12MP RAW images anyway.
    And a dedicated GPU will help your performance, but the 13" could suffice for the Aperture usage you do.

    i susually edit in jpegs and hardly use raw, i thought about moving to lightroom but for ameture like me, i thought the interface of aperture was way user friendly:
