    You might be slightly inhibited by the fact that you have pretty limited data on the 13" model -- you can probably get away with using the 13' aluminum Macbooks as a reference, but I would personally think the plastic ones may not be a good comparison.

    Also, does it matter to you how much depreciation occurs or are you really literally asking about the price after 6 mos? The data in that thread generally bears out the idea that depreciation is approximately proportional to value -- the 15" will be worth more than the 13" after a given amount of time, but it will also lose more value in the given amount of time.

    how much depreciation occurs. So basically percentage wise.
