This thing will give any Mac a run for the dough. The days of needing a Mac for digital audio and music production are long gone. Besides, Macs are stupid expensive.
mac track pad is a game changer though. haven't used a mouse for two years. money well spent imo

true, but you don't get much more on a 15' in this respect anyway. obviously you get to see more on a 15'. but then the bigger the screen, the more you see. nothing beats the inverted screen for rack and horizontal for the seq. which i don't have yet.

but talking about laptops? again, if you can work on a 13' some of the time, if you can get along with it, and if you travel a lot, well... whatever. i'm happy w a 13'. do what makes you happy.

I use the late 2011 dual i7 13" macbook pro model.

updgraded the RAM to 6gig and performance is fine.

Screen size is alright, i do run dual monitors however in osx lion you can just create more desktops and swipe between screens (sequencer on one desktop, mixer on another etc)

I bought the 13" model for more of a hybrid studio & DJ performance laptop.

I'm happy with it.
