    Hi guys,

    I bought my MBP 13 in Jan, and am considering trade it, along with $380 cash, with a MBP 15 2.4g i5, which was purchased in Feb. Both Macs are in great condition. So I'm wondering if it worth the money for me? Mostly I use my mac to do some programming.

    I'd like a larger screen. But is the 2 inch difference significant?

    To be honest it all depends what you want to do with it.
    Being there is a large difference in the power and internal
    guts of both machines.

    If its power i myself saved £ 500 sterling pounds by purchasing the
    new 2011 13 inch model that has the i5 chip inside.

    Regarding screen again all depends how you going to use the laptop.
    Myself is more taking it with me and loading my Contour HD 1080
    footage and pics onto it, and then taking it home and edit it all
    on my 23 inch samsung Sync TV/Monitor.

    Hope this helps.

    yeah it really just depends what you want... 13 is way more portable, 15 has much nicer screen and is more powerful. Maybe an external monitor would be sufficient for you while at home, which would probably be the cheapest solution!
