    Hi all,

    I'm planning to buy a new MacBook Pro soon.
    I was thinking of getting a 13'' i5 16GB 512GB TB-model, because it's more portable than the 15'' and slightly cheaper.
    A local APR has a special sale today and tomorrow only, where the 2.2GHz i7, 16GB 256GB 15'' model is €350 euros cheaper, making it only about €150 more expensive than the 13'' model I would buy.

    What would you guys recommend?
    I will use it for the basic stuff, some photo editing, writing my thesis next year and maybe some more demanding tasks in the future.

    I think the 13'' would be fine for me but the 15'' has the dedicated graphics and I love the bigger display.
    The 15'' wouldn't fit in my backpack however, and I wouldn't be able to use it at our in the NICU because there's not enough room for a laptop that big.

    thanks in advance!

    If you can't use it where you need to use it, then it is a nonstarter. Go with the 13.
