Apple has a lot of good portable computers, but the choice of which one to get is a very personal decision. I like the 17-inch MacBook Pro because of its power that I use for creating music. If that kind of power intensive task isn’t necessary, you can look at something like the MacBook Air. I have an 11-inch Air and it is one of the best computers I’ve ever owned for traveling.
The 13-inch MacBook Air has everything I do need, nothing that I don’t, and even a few additional features such as being light weight and having a thinner form factor. Which means that for me, going from a 15-inch MacBook Pro to a 13-inch MacBook Air will be an upgrade.
