Recently I have planned to learn android app development. I am willing to by a macbook pro retina display. 13 inch is my choice because it is more portable than 15 inch. But 13 inch macbook pro is dual core. And 15 inch has quad core processor. I will customize my mac when order but there are no option for 13 inch macboom pro retina display to make it quad core.

Should I buy quad core 15 inch macbook pro or 13 inch? It is diffucult to carry 15 inch. 13 inch is less powerful. What should I do? Yes 13 or 15 whar ever I want to buy the retina display version.

Suggest please.

Why are you buying a Mac to do android development?

It's a really expensive way of doing it tbh... I have a PC with an AMD Athlon x64 2.2GHz dual core CPU and it compiles the apps that I code in under 2 minutes. You only really need a PC or laptop capable of running Android Studio or eclipse.
