I am torn. On the one hand I want to downsize from my 15" to a 13" for size and weight reasons.

But now the new Lightroom Classic is out, and from what I understand, some of the performance improvements benefit from 4 cores, which you only get on the 15".

Now I have to decide how important portability is.

If I had only one computer, I think the 15 is the best balance of size, weight, power.

2 months ago, I moved all of my photography work to a 27" iMac. I continue to use my 2012 15" MBP for everything else in my life. Today's 15" are 4lbs, which is 20% lighter than the 5lbs that I still lug around. However, my next laptop will be 13" because I have screen estate on another machine.
