    Hey all :)
    Wondering if the 13" MacBook pro will be able to handle After Effects CS5, with around 3 compositions running, 20 layers in each, all color corrected, and some 3d layers (basic, nothing the intel 3000 shouldn't be able to handle)
    I would like a larger screen, but I need to take it into school, so the 15" portability concerns me.
    Any help is appreciated :)

    I would get the 15" IMHO. The 15" is really not that big and the processor and graphics boost will be good for your uses.

    Also wondering, how many physical cores can After Effects use?

    After Effects post CS3 can take advantage of the quad-cores, CS5 being able to take advantage of 8GB or RAM... so every little bit helps. I suggest get the 15 incher.
