    Hi everybody,

    I would like to know your opinion about the model I should buy.
    I work onboard cruise ships, so for me mobility is an important point..
    What I usually want to do with my laptop is:

    watching movies
    looking/showing pitures
    listening music
    browsing the web
    emails
    SOME Ilife work

    and nothing else...

    Do you think that a 11.6 with top configurated could be enough to run everything smootly and ad a good speed?
    I could also chose the 13.3 model wich is supposed to be a little bit faster, but a owned a 12.2 PB and I totally LOVED that form factor...

    Help me please!!
    Many thanks for your opinion!!

    Even the 11.6" base model will be too fast for those things :)

    Don't worry, they'll handle all that in their sleep.

    I fully agree.

    Make your choice based on the screen size / physical laptop size you want (11.6" or 13.3") and the resolution you want.

    Agreed. That's just basic usage and nothing more.

    Many thanks to everybody (very quick!!!)

    If all of you agree that I will not notice any kind of problem or limitation I think I will trust you and go for a "full optional" 11.6... :D

    I also think I'm gonna enjoy it a lot ;)

    Thanks again!!

    If you do a lot of videos or word processing, I would go with a 13" because of the better screen real estate.
