I have used the search and I really hate to beat the dead horse on this.. Seriously. I do. However, I digress..... I am a long time lurker, but I am in the market for a new MacBook. I'm currently on a Late 08 13" Unibody MB (non pro), but I start law school in August and I am planning on upgrading this summer. I'm waiting for WWDC before I make any purchases, but my question stands no matter what happens at WWDC. I can spend around $2,000 give or take a little (not a lot) and obviously not including Apple Care etc. While i'm pretty technologically proficient, I don't fully grasp the minutiae of processing speed differences. I'm basically trying to decide between an upgraded 13" rMBP or a baseline 15" rMBP. It bears mentioning that I have a Mac Mini also, so my MBP will not be my only computer, though it will be my primary computer. Basically I use my laptop for word processing, internet, powerpoint, etc. Rarely (if ever) any CPU intensive things. I have never even noticed that my 08 MB runs slow or anything, so I know that I don't "need" the 15" rMBP. But if it is within my price range, is a baseline 15" rMBP substantially better than an upgraded 13" rMBP? I realize a lot of this comes down to personal preference, and I really like the size of the 13", but I also see that the 15" is a more powerful machine with quad core processing, etc. Wow, that was longer than I expected. If you skipped all that, basically here is my question: If you have around $2,000 to spend on a computer (for a college student), do you go with the upgraded 13" rMBP or the baseline 15" rMBP?
