MacBook Pro 13" or MacBook Pro 15"
May 11, 2010

Hi all,

i'm a PC user now and am going to convert to a Mac. Am currently considering the base model for the 13" and 15". (i've copied the specs at the end of the e-mail)

Usage:

i'm just a casual photographer and use mainly Lightroom to edit my photos (RAW files) and occassionally use CS to stitch panoramas.

Therefore, I would need advise whether the 6MB cache on the i5 (15" MBP) would make a lot of different compared the the 3MB cache on the Core 2 Duo (13" MBP).

Thank you all in advance for your advice!!!
