Which is the best MBP for Audio recording/mixing/editing/DJ-ing etc ? And Why ?

I'm buying my First Macbook in the following week , got my eyes on the 13''. The dilemma I face is whether it is good enough to support me with my Audio editing. I will be using DJ-ing softwares like DJ Traktor , Virtual Dj etc. which is why i want to ensure that a Mac book Pro 13'' wont let me down when i need it the most .
Are 15 and 17 inchers really gonna give me a considerable advantage over the 13'' MBP.

    In respect to raw power, the 17 inch will win hands down.
    However, the 13 inch should be perfectly capable of the programs you are asking about. I personally got the 15 inch because it has the perfect balance of power, portability, and not costing a fortune. As I understand it, the 15 and 17 inch versions also have a dedicated GPU as well as a integrated one, while the 13 has only the integrated.
    The 13 should fit your needs fine if that is all you are really going to be doing, just be sure to put enough RAM in, and possibly upgrade the CPU if buying online.
    Hope this helps :)
