Location eh?
Using a 15" but I still have a 13" which exclusively boots Windows 7 to keep Pro Tools around...

The only Mac which rocks due to natural case warp is my 12" PowerBook G4, it wobbles to the mini-subwoofer bass when you blast Cave-In's "Lift Off" in iTunes... :p :D :cool:

I will be buying a 15"
I think it's also a good idea to post a short description of what you use it for.
For me it's going to be pretty much my only computer, mostly for school.

I've been lusting after a 15" for a while now. I tried a hands on at the apple store and it felt like I had so much space to work with. Those extra 2 inches really do make all the difference.

I prefer the 17-inch MacBook Pro but since they don't make it any more I had to get the 15-inch to replace my early 2009 model.

Using my 13 inch early 2011 and love the form factor, also have some MacBooks both 13 inch and a powerbook 12 inch.

I'm working off two 13" rMBPs and one 15" rMBP (both Haswells).

13" rMBP (2.4/4/128) - won in a raffle
13" rMBP (2.8 i7/16/512) - bought it because the 13" from the raffle was underpowered for my needs
15" rMBP (2.6/16/1TB/750M) - my portable workhorse

If Apple launches a 17" one weighting like a 15", that would be my choice.

- 2.1kg max.
- 32GB RAM
- i7 hexa-core
- up to dual PCIe storage
- 10h battery life

Just dreaming...

I have the 13" retina MacBook Pro and I regret not getting the 15". The 13" was just so much lighter, but I realize now that portability isn't as important for me as it used to be, and the extra two inches in screen real estate really is a much bigger difference in person than it sounds like on paper.

I used to have a 15-inch Dell laptop before I got my 13-inch MBP and at first it was hard to get used to that screen-size reduction.

That said now after having this computer for about 3 years, I can't do larger laptops. It's just so awkward for me. I've just like smaller displays I guess. the iPad Air is too big for me, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is too big for me, heck the rumored 4.7in iPhone and my 4.7in Moto X are both pushing it for me.

Every time I go into the Apple Store and I use the 15 inch Pro it feels like I'm using a massive piece of equipment. Even the 27in iMac feels too big to me!

I LOVE the 13 inch model though. I just wish I could get the power of the 15-inch Pros with Quad-Core i5s/i7s and dedicated graphics cards but with the 13 inch screen size. Hopefully one day it'll happen.

Oddly enough I have a 32" TV and sometimes I find it being almost too small, and I want to get myself 20-24" display for external use on my computer. I guess I'm just really weird :/
