    I am gonna buy my very first MBP, and here's my question: which one should I buy, 13 inch or 15 inch.

    I don't run softwares like photoshop or finalcut very often and I will be traveling a lot, so I kind of prefer 13 inch. But I am also 6'3 ft tall, so it might be a little weird since a 13 inch laptop could be too small.

    What do you guys think a big guy like me with a 13 inch laptop? Or that I should go for 15 inch which is a bit over my budget but still affordable. No 17 inch coz it's really huge!

    Well, I got 180 cm and I got 13" and I can tell you that for me 15" would be too big, cos u can put ur 13" into any backpack, while the 15" won't get in! U should go to the apple store and have a look at 13 inch and 15 inch. Have a look at the matte vs. glossy screen. I hope that I have helped u

    For heavy travel I'd much prefer the 13". Not sure your height is any issue.

    I'm 170 cm and I have a 17" MBP and even a backpack that accommodates it.
    Is your backpack that small?

    for traveling i would have gotten the 13" when the new model comes out.

    actually..u need to be concerned about the difference in the screen resolutions rather than the height..:)..personally...I have the 15 but prefer the 13..but I am not okay with the resolution offered on the 13...

    Anyway...I am hoping that post the MBP refresh (whenever that happens), the 13's screen would be upgraded..
