I'm thinking of getting a MacBook Pro for my wife and was considering two options for her. Her typical use (with her current Dell laptop) is probably 40% browsing while laying on the couch and 60% browsing/working at her desk. Option #1: 15" MBP i5 2.4 GHz (Apple Refurb price: $1529) Option #2: 13" MBP C2D 2.4 GHz (Apple Refurb price: $1019) 23" Samsung Monitor (Costco price: $200) I'll search for other monitor options as well, but that 23" for $200 is about the size/price I'm looking at. The thought process is that for about $300 less, she can use the smaller laptop more easily on the couch, or then connect it to a much larger screen at her desk. But while the specs are a little less powerful, I think it would still be good for browsing, office, and iLife apps, correct? Or is it worth the extra $300 to have the 15" laptop and then just use that size while at her desk as well? Thanks!
