How do the speakers on the new 13 inch macbook pro with retina compare to the ones on the new 15 inch with retina?

Are they louder, clearer, better? Are they equally as powerful? Are the speakers noticeably more muffled on the 13 inch?

    I previously owned the 13" macbook pro w/out retina and found the speakers to be a little muffled and not really stereo. I recently got the 13 retina and OH MY the speakers are ridiculous. They appear to come out of the side ports thus L/R sound. In addition they are extremely clear and LOUD. I had portable speakers I used with my laptop and now I don't need them. The laptop is room filling. So coming from someone who has used both these are an obvious upgrade. I'm actually surprised I havent seen this mentioned in any reviews.

  • I previously owned 15" macbook pro (mid 2010), and recently got a 13" retina. And the quality of the sound is just jaw dropping. It is all clearer, crispier and louder than what I had before.
