Depends how you use it. If it's your primary machine (or a machine you use a lot) and screen size is critical then the biggest screen that you're able to carry.

For me, I've always used 13" but would grab a 14" if it was as small, or smaller, than the footprint of a current Macbook Pro . If I have to use the screen it's either being used as a secondary machine or I'm travelling between offices and 13" gets me through well enough.

However, for working, I always connect to a 27" external.

Everyone has their own answer. Whatever works best for you.
cheers
Chris Maunder
