13" or 15" Retina?


I've been looking to purchase a Mac for College. I would like the portability of a laptop, so should I get the 13" Macbook without Retina display, or the 15' one WITH Retina Display.

    In my personal experience, 13" is the most perfect size for a laptop. 15" just always seemed to big, and people who have laptops that size complain about it.
    And in all honesty, I use a 13" MacBook air for all of my work (and play) and it suits me just fine. If you're concerned about portability, you won't regret going Air. Also, as far as college work goes, I'm guessing a Retina display won't be necessary either.
