New Retina 13'' vs 15" for researcher using programs like Matlab or Stata

Hello to everyone! I need to invest in a new laptop that can match both my needs: portability and performance. I use to bring it with me everythere and so MBPr 13" seems to be better for me. However I'm willing to pay a little bit more (compared to the overall price) and bear a bigger dimension (... I think that the real disadvantage is the size, since it seems to be largest rather than actually heaviest in my opinion) if the 15"s stronger performance is relevant for my requirements. I will use it to work above all on software like Madlab and Stata to perform econometric algorithms; I need to install also windows on it; I want to be sure I won't need to buy a new laptop for the next 5 years. Is the 13" sufficient for me, or buying the 15" I will see the difference in performance?

Thanks for your support!
