So I'm going to college the upcoming fall and I'm looking into laptops. I want something that will last me a long time and that is fast enough for surfing the web, watching YouTube videos and maybe doing the occasional gaming on it. I've basically fallen in love with the new MacBook Pros with retina displays and I just need to know which size to get. I need something kind of portable, but that can also meet my needs as a college student.

Even though this exact question hasn't been asked before, it's still "15 or 13 Macbook Pro?" which has been asked lots of times before:

Well, if money is no object, I'd go with the 15". I've got a 2010 15" MacBook Pro and I think the size is perfect. If portability is your main priority, maybe you'd like the 13", but it's a little small for my liking. Screen real estate is key for me, and the 15" is also plenty portable in my experience.
