Related question: Does Mathematica work on 2016 MacBook Pros?
I am trying to figure out whether it would be a wiser decision to run Mathematica on a pricey 15" MacBook Pro or on a 13" MacBook Pro. Any inputs would be welcome. Does Mathematica run faster or more efficiently on a quad-core system? I have a quad core Linux laptop and Mathematica runs somewhat slowly on it, which could have to do with poor utilization of resources etc. But I am in the market for a portable laptop for LaTeX and Mathematica.
The MacBook Pro 15" is way more expensive so I'd be pinching myself financially to get it, but if it is technically a better purchase for Mathematica, I am all in for it.
