    Hi all, I'm looking at picking up a new MBP in the next week or so as my last one decided to die beyond economical repair. Looking at what Apple offer, it seems that spec for spec the 13" is a much better buy, with a better processor (2.9 i7 vs 2.7) The only other difference on paper is that the 15 has a better graphics card but I get the impression it's more than that.

    I'm going to be running an external monitor(s) when it's at home so the screen size isn't a deal breaker, I'm just interested in terms of performance - will be mainly using pro tools/logic etc maybe some occasional and very basic photo/video editing. Is the 15 actually worth the extra $$$ considering I'd be losing a little processor speed?

    Thanks

    The 15" is a quad core while the 13" is a duo core...
