Hi, first time poster long time lurker. I haven't had my own mac since back in the Performa days, but had a 24" iMac at my last job and miss it greatly. I have been waiting for the new refresh for a few months, and now that it is here I am ready to get back on the apple train (so sick of my 2 year old Dell Inspiron on Vista!). My problem is that I can't decide if I should get a 13" + a ~24inch external display, or a 15". I use my laptop as my full time computer as a web developer. I have been on a high res 15" for the last 5 or 6 years so I am used to that, but at the same time it is rather bulky for travel. If I were to get a 15", I would get the high res, matte screen so I'm thinking the price of 13" + display + extras and a 15" would be comparable. My only real questions are... Do I understand correctly that a 13" is fine at outputting high res to an external monitor? Higher than the actual res of the 13"... seems a bit strange. Are there any nice docking station type things so I can just slot it in and be ready to go with a real keyboard/mouse/monitor? Is there much difference performance wise b/w 13" 2.4GHz and 2.66ghz? I am not a gamer. The price dif betweent the entry level 13" and the entry level 15 inch is huge... So here's the personal pros of each as I see them: 13" - smaller, easier to travel with - with an external display, would actually be a bigger screen at home, almost like having 2 computers - better battery life 15" - nice high res, matte screen - better refresh and i5 processor (was really hoping 13" would get this, oh well) - perhaps a better straight up work machine with the bigger monitor without needing an external display And so I'm stuck. Any other large considerations I should be thinking about? I'm basically looking for someone to make up my mind for me lol. My next step is obviously to go to the store and get a hands on experience. Thanks for any help.
