    It will depend on your eyes. You are used to a desktop. If your eyes can handle it go for the 13. I had one years ago before my eyes went to crap. My previous machine was a 17 inch. It was unwieldy. I like my 15 inch. Also, if you need lots of power, the 15 or the 17 are the only paths.

    I like the 13". It's portable, powerful and with Spaces you can organize different apps on different desktops which helps to keep it all organized.

    I have owned several Apple laptops over the years. All of them have been the 15" version. I prefer the extra screen size compared to the 13". Good luck with your new computer!

    I just posted over in the pictures forum a shot of my new Smart Alec on tour in Japan containing a 4z Brain Cell for my new 15" unibody!

    13" for the road - 22" on the desk!

    IMHO here's my perspective. I use a 13" MBP as my single computer. I have a 22" external monitor at home and also one in my office. The latest 13" unibody MPS are solid and easier to travel with (one pound less) than the 15" (which I've been using variouse interations of MBs for the past 4-6 years) - plus the difference in price between the 13" and the 15" covers the cost of one 22" (I have Samsung and Dell externals; think I like the dell a little better) and an external keyboard/mouse. So I have the best of both worlds - a smaller easily transportable MBP, plus much larger video real estate when I'm "stationary" my office desk(s) where I do most of my long term computer work. So the 13" MBP "on the road" is easily tolerable to me. It goes with out saying, make sure you have an exernal hard disk at home and use a back up program.
