    Thanks for your reply! I would also like to know about 13" display. Apple says it is 67% brighter display compare to previous one. What's your thought?

      Hey there, I got the 15" w/ TB and came from a 2012 13" non-Retina. The screen is really impressive in its color and also brightness yes. I don't use an external display anymore, as a main screen it's enough for me. Also the 15" is only marginally larger than the old 13" that I had before (and weighs less).

      I came from a 15" Retina and I would definetly say this is brighter. The previous one I always had cranked up to 100% in brightness whereas the 13" is good at around 70-80%. (Same goes for LG 5k Display, I have it at 80% whereas the Thunderbolt was always at 100%).
