Should I get a 11 inch macbook air or a 13 inch

    The main difference to me comes down to one thing--that of screen size. Yes, there are other differences (such as overall surface area, weight, etc), but the primary difference (for me) seems to be that of screen size. So if you tend to work with several applications at the same time, you'll most likely need more screen real estate--so go with the 13". But if you move around a lot and use your Air is small places (e.g., airplane) ,then go with the 11". I went with the 11" only because I already have a 27-inch iMac. Under the hood the 11" and 13" are almost identical. And as far as screen resolution goes, the 13" is a little better--but honestly, you can hardly tell. I should add, that, if you're going to use your Air as your primary computer, go with 256gb of memory versus 128gb. That's all. Hope this helps.
