    Okay, objective opinions only please.

    I know the 15" owners will come in and say how great the 15" is and how it beats everything else and i know the 13" owners will come in to play the portability card.

    My question is, is it worth selling my 2011 MacBook Pro 13" and add 200 cash for a 2010 15" with high res (glossy though) 2.4?

    I don't game or do heavy editing and i do value the portability on the 13". I wouldnt mind the high res screen though. Its just the constant 15">>>>>>everything is starting to make me wonder what the better option is.

    You are asking for objective answers to a subjective question. You need decide what is more important for you; the 13" form factor or the high-res screen, and what is the best fit for your budget.

    I would keep the 2011 model over a 2010 model even if it was 15" with high-res display. The hardware otherwise on the 2011 is better ans faster. Thats me though.
