To 13" MBP Or Not?

    Previously I was looking at the 15" MBP before the refresh and couldn't afford it and now the refresh is here I'm wondering whether I should splash out on the top end 13" MBP, It will be used for the likes of Photoshop, Browsing, Other design work etc.

    What are your thoughts?

    I would also be able to get it slightly cheaper as I'm a student

    If you need someone else to decide for you, then yes, buy it.

    Previous gen 15" is under $1300 refurb if you want to look at that

    If you are doing a lot of design and visual stuff get hte 15" with the high res screen.

    It won't be major design work just the occasional piece here and there

    Son, folks here can't take you by the hand and decide these things.

    But... given your graphical preferences I'd forego the MBP13 for something with a bit more "oomph" in the err, "graphics" department.

    Or at least wait until somebody has a chance to review that piece-o-crap IGP of Intel's. (May as well be "officially" disappointed).

    Hmm I'm not sure whether to save a bit more for the Low spec 15" It's a few hundred £ more but I suppose it would be better in the long run?

    Would there be a massive performance decrease in the low end 13" MBP?

    Also what's it like using a 13" screen as I've only had my monitor which is 22" :p
