Major Differences Between The 13 and 15/17-inch Macbook Pros

The 13 inch Macbook Pro will cover the needs of most typical digital nomads who primarily use their computers to write, create spreadsheets, or write programming code. The modest storage capacity has enough to store all of your work and recreational pictures you’ll take while traveling.

The 15/17-inch Macbook Pros, aside from the larger screens, have more RAM and computing power and are worth spending the extra money on if you work in graphic design or run CPU intensive programs like AutoCAD. While the 15/17-inch Macbook Pros won’t let any digital nomad down, consider your needs if you are on a budget.
