Yes 13” is only for some emergence things like server reboot when you out of office or some quick site fixes. 15” ideal for Apple notebooks (with 1440x resolution or retina). I don’t recommend to use notebooks with 17”+ its very heavy and not confinuent to use and take with you. For office use I absolutely recommend you 27” iMac, you can save money on CPU or HDD, but don’t save money for size, don’t take 24” iMac, 27” is ideal size.
I have to disagree with you, massively.
I have a Macbook 17” from 2010. It might be a little on the heavy side but it’s not that much of a problem. In fact I’ve stopped using my desktop and this is now my sole machine. The weight difference between a 15” and 17” isn’t an issue when I’m out and about, it’s entirely a marketing ploy. If it’s heavy your muscles will grow and get over it.
Furthermore the OP is looking to buy a mbp/air.. why are you talking about iMacs?
I recommend you to buy notebook with Windows.
You will not be less professional if you don’t use apple products.
wrong attitude completely. The correct one would be buy a Macbook of some sort and bootcamp Windows on it so you can develop for and can function on both platforms.
MSFX saidYeah, I have been travelling a lot for the last 2 years. I am not a climber but a hard core trekker. I have explored a lot of lakes and valleys in Pakistan. Next summer I plan a grand trip to Tajikistan, China (Tibet) and Nepal in one go.
gorgeous view, would love to trek/climb through Gondogoro La one day, must have been stunning. You climb/trek alot?
sounds amazing, nearly had Nepal planned for this year but glad we didn’t go after the trouble on Everest might go trekking in the region next year
Always check this site first… they’ve just had a minor refresh so not a bad time to buy although a more major refresh may come in a couple of months…http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/#Mac
I would also say go with the 15” Pro and max it out… I bought a 17” pro 4 years ago and it’s still a solid machine, never lets me down… worth the investment.
