Choosing which MacBook Pro Model

See also how I configured my 17" MacBook Pro.

I opted for the 17" model because even a 15" display feels cramped when working with images, especially with palettes in Photoshop, etc.

For a slightly smaller form factor, the 15" model is excellent, but I do recommend getting the high resolution anti-glare screen option (which then brings its price very close to the 17" model).

The 13" model is a great choice too, with no compromises other than dual cores instead of quad-core. Those are fast dual cores, so for most users this is not a serious issue. Video users should stick to quad-core.
