    Have a 17" 2009 MBP which is becoming to big for me as I am having to travel more now I do not do anything to serious on a computer anymore mostly email web browsing spreadsheets. I am trying to decide between a 13 air or 15 pro purely for screen since I have gotten used to the higher res of the 17 I just don't if it is worth $650 for 2 inches more of screen?

    13" is the best concession between weight, balance, performance and screen size if you carry a lot.

    I have a 13" MBP and a 13" MBA. I bought a 17" MBP a few weeks ago and ended up taking it back for the 13" MBA instead.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    If you don't know, how are we supposed to know? Screen size is a personal preference. I don't know why anyone would want a 13" screen, but that's me. YMMV. Go into a store and test out each model or something.
