    MacBook Pro 13 inch vs 15 inch
    I need advice on whether to go for the 13 inch 2.66Ghz Core 2 Duo model or the 15 inch 2.4 GHz i5. The memory for both is 4GB and 320GB hard drive.

    I need to run boot camp with windows 7 and the main program that I will be running is essentially a large excel pricing model using an internet connection(it is called Whentech). I also need a few other programs at the same time. The 13 inch size is more ideal, but speed is the biggest concern. Will the i5 really make a significant difference in speed for the price? I don't care about graphics.

    If you're looking to run heavy programs, an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz+ with 4GB of RAM will do you just fine. I'd say go with the 15" because it's much better for the eye. I know you'll think that 2" isn't much of a difference, but believe me it is.

    Get the newer. Newer technology, future proofing, resale value..etc why do I sound like a broken record?
