    Hello everybody.

    Looking for some advise what to go for next, coming from a 2009 MacBook.

    Except internet I will use it mainly for lightroom working with 25 mb pics on average.

    In the future I will be buying a 24-27 inch external monitor with max resolution 2560x1440

    My options are

    1. Go for a 13 inch non touchbar 2016 stock model or 13 inch 2015 model But then with 256 gb sdd

    2. Spend a little more and go for the 15 inch 2015 stock model.

    What I would like to know is

    1. Is the 15 inch overkill for what I want with 16 gb Ram and safe money and spend it on a better monitor?
    2. Is the speed difference between the 13 and 15 models a huge difference in Lightroom?
    3. Are the 13 inchs powerfull enough for the external monitor with lighroom. Without lags

    I think you'll be better off with the '15 15"
