    2012 8gb 256gb macbook pro retina 15"


    2013 8gb 256gb macbook pro retina 13"

    i can get the 15" for only 50 more but is it worth it to have the newer 2013 model...

    Well the 15" is more capable of intensive tasks, but it all depends on what you intend to do with it.

    Give us your typical uses as well as needs for travel and we will be able to give you better advice.

    Whichever you want, for that use case it'll make no difference unless you plan to attach to a 4K monitor in which case get the 15 inch.

    I would go with the 13 inch for probability myself.
