macbook air - 11" vs 13"

Hi there

I have a few overseas trips coming up and I would like to purchase a macbook air due to its weight and slim profile. I would use it primarily for ingesting photos into Lightroom and doing some very basic editing.

I would really like to purchase the 11" model due to its size/weight but I am concerned that there won't be ample screen real estate for what I want to use it for and as such, it would be really frustrating using the 11" model.

So to those of you who have the macbook air - would I be able to get away with the 11" version for Lightroom or should I just bite the bullet and get the 13" model? Unfortunately, I am miles and miles away from the nearest apple retailer, so I cannot check them out in person.

Thanks for your help.
