That really isnt a lot of real estate. Sure it will work. Key question really is are you prepared to sacrifice it.

Ideally, the 15 inch is a better option. They 17 versions are silly priced.

Fwiw I have a 13" MacBook that I used to use for editing a lot. As I said it's workable but certainly not spacious

It's certainly not gonna stop you making music so just go with it and make the best! One thought I had was maybe instead of getting a 13"mbp just get a 15" mb. All you get with the mbp is, I understand, upgraded graphics and soundcards (neither of which are a must have for music) so it might be better to spend the extra on screen estate (unless you are also a gamer I guess)
