It's time for me to finally switch over from my crappy windows laptop and move over to a macbook so I can do work outside of my iMac on my standing desk.
I'm currently trying to decide between the 13" MBPr with the new force trackpad and the 15" MBPr (w/o the dedicated graphics card).
In order to better answer the question, here's some info:
- I'm a designer (and front-end dev) who exclusively uses Sketch for design and Brackets for development.
- I'm also a commercial photographer who shoots around once every two months or so. Being able to tether a laptop while I should wil be awesome :)
- My budget is between $1500-$1900, so I'm looking at refurbished
- Regardless of which one I get I want it to be the 2015 model and have 16GB of Ram and 256SSD. -If I get the 13" I'll consider getting a monitor for it in a few months.
So, I think the question narrows down to, is 13" enough screen real estate for designing? and what are the benefits or force touch?
