    Hi guys, I really need your help... I am in dilemma. I would like to buy macbook but I have two on my table. Both are used and in good shape:
    Mb 15' 2014 2.2ghz 16gb ram £900
    Mb 13' 2015 2.7ghz 8gb ram £680

    Both have apple care.

    My work is developer java and android. what do you guys suggest?
    Also you need to know. I already have macbook 15' I am happy with it. This one is for my wife and a backup if something happens to mine.
    I know 15 is much better but is it worth that much or other way around is 13 relly cheap compared to 15...

    Get a new 15. That way, you will have 3 MacBooks on the desk. Make your own MacBook Trilogy. ;)

    But seriously, do you even need a new one?

    Same dilemma for me, different usage (web development). Im leaning towards 13" as I have an external monitor. The only thing that worries me is the 8gb as I'm going to keep it for 4-5 years.

    I doubt that 4-5 years will last any with me... But I already do have 15inch and for primary machine I didnt even thinking...It is much faster.. If I would be you for primary machine take 15..

    This one is like my backup and a toy for my wife...

    I will take both, create project compile run and compare time... If significant difference then I will keep better one
    otherwise keep 13inch
