According to MacRumors, the MacBook Pro is nearing the age for an update soon, and the MBP that you listed seems a little shabby as far as specs. Only 256 MB of VRAM can only take you so far, and you don't get Thunderbolt (I know, not a deal breaker, but it is a versatile port). If you can, I honestly say if you can, wait. If Apple releases a new MBP in the near future, you'd probably see prices go down a bit on 2011 MBPs, and, of course, get better specs.
But that's just my 2 cents, and I'm not sure what you're doing with it...
