not sure which macbook pro 13" or maybe a 15" to get

I am in college and would be using it for itunes, games, fb, and documents. I want a faster computer than I have now, and am tired of my windows computer locking up all the time. Also what software would I need to be able to use documents and powerpoint? I was thinking maybe a refurbished 15" because of cost and bigger screen, I have a 15" now and like the screen size, is there really that much of a difference?
Thank you

  • It's all about personal preference and trying them out at the Apple store.

    As for me, I have a regular 13" Pro. It's small enough to take with me, and it's fast enough for office work, games, movies, etc. But after a while, I got tired of looking at a small screen. So I bought a Matrox splitter connecting to two 25" screens.

    As for refurbished, I would personally stay away from them. (But that's my opinion)

    Like I said, try them out at the store. And of course, it never hurts asking Apple owners what they think.

    Good luck
