    Hello I would't like te buy a macbook pro, unfortunately my budget is limited. So I wonder which macbook you would recommend me. I have chosen the macbook pro 15" with the bottom specs and the 13" with max specs.

    15-inch MacBook Pro - Space Gray
    • 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz
    • 16GB 2133MHz memory
    • 1TB PCIe-based SSD
    • Radeon Pro 450 with 2GB memory
    • Backlit Keyboard (English) & User's Guide
    • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
    • Touch Bar and Touch ID
    € 3.419,00 = $ 3,770.51 (in EU it's a different price of in the US)

    OR

    13-inch MacBook Pro - Space Gray
    • 3.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz
    • 16GB 2133MHz memory
    • 1TB PCIe-based SSD
    • Intel Iris Graphics 550
    • Backlit Keyboard (English) & User's Guide
    • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
    • Touch Bar and Touch ID
    € 3.279,00 = $ 3,616.56

    Thanks for the response.
    I hope I can become a decision.

    15". The CPU is far more capable and you get a dGPU too.

    I think he meant what would you use it for? Graphics design, video editing, app/web development, etc.

    It's hard to say which will work better without knowing the intended usage. If all you need is for casual use, I'd save the money and get the base version with touch bar.

    I'd like to pose this same question and add that I'll be using it for Logic Pro X and mid-level gaming. Which would be better in that case?

    I'll be using it for Final Cut Pro, editing some short movies, and Solidworks 3d-design software. For these I can definitely use the bigger screen. Also for some regular homework.

    Well it looks like it's a no brainer then. Get the 15 inch.
