Will buy my first Mac Book Pro: Using 13" screen sufficient?


Dear fellows,

planning to buy my first Mac Book Pro.
I would have money for a 13" model.
How is the worklow with a 13" display?
I have no possibility to test it somewhere.
It would be not my main computer, because mostly I work with my 24" iMac.
I would install only Logic 9 Express, a little bit surfing , E-Mail and office stuff.

I have not recently used anything smaller than a 15" computer for quite some time but I think it's safe to say that the screen real estate of the 13" might get a little cramped.
I assume the 13" has a separate monitor out in which you could buy a larger flatscreen and use in dual-screen mode. But this obviously cuts down on portability.

I have a MacPro tower and work with two monitors. The ergonomics of two monitors can drastically help you if it is within your budget.
Dear Charlie,

thanks for reply.

Do not understand me wrong, I have an 24" iMac with an 23" Cinema display as a expansion.

The 13" would be only for a little bit music on holiday or on a couch in the living room.
I was at a friend and I was able to compare 13' with 15' with Logic 9. And I Must admit:
15' was much netter. Additionally the 15' has the i5 CPU instead off c2d, so I decided to Order the 15'. Greetings from Germany. Marcus
