Which Retina Macbook Pro(13 in vs 15 in) suits best for a Computer Engineer?

I'm a computer engineer student and I will like to know which Mac works better for programming software(compiling), parallels and etc.

  • I have the Macbook Pro 13 (Retina) which is doing fine for programming software / writing codes, but the screen size will limit the number of lines you would see at a time. Unless you go for lower screen settings which will loose the Retina advantage.

    The 15" display will give you more space to work, comes with quad processor (i7) and 16 GB RAM, which is better for your programming.

    So, Macbook Pro 15" Retina is better for software engineers.
