It is time for a new laptop and my neck and shoulders are begging me to get a 13" MacBook Pro instead of the 15". I’m on the go quite a bit and am sick of lugging the 15" around. I think from a power standpoint, I should be fine, right? The 13" quad core I5 with 16GB memory gets solid reviews. My main concern is really how difficult it is to use LR and PS on the 13" screen. I do not have an external monitor and would prefer not to buy one. Most of my editing is done while traveling anyway.
So I’d love to hear if anyone does regular editing work on a 13". Or has any issues running LR on it.
Side note - For my 2015 alum peeps who were there the day a gigantic cup of coffee got spilled on my brand new laptop and the expletives started rolling…this is the one! It made it 4 years and now it doesn’t recognize that it has a battery so it has to be plugged in to work at all. Apple looked at it but said “you spilled something sticky and brown on it” and gave it right back to me. I guess I should feel lucky it lasted this long with half of a Liquid Planet latte in it.
