Is this upgrade worth 89 euros (after students discount)?
It depends on what you're using the Mac for. In most cases, it's not gonna be noticeable at all. If you're gonna be rendering video a lot, then you may notice the few less seconds it'll take to finish.
the cpu goes from 2.0 to 2.3
the igpu also goes from 1200mhz to 1300mhz
It won't be a very noticeable difference, except in prolonged and CPU intensive tasks. What do you use your machine for? If you're doing video encoding, export large amounts of photos, etc. then it might be worth it to shave some seconds off your tasks every day. If you're not, then no, unless you just want bragging rights.
Quite a alot of music coverting flac-> alac, running a lot of apps at the same time and not too much video stuff.
Will is make it sell for more?
and here it says the igpu isnt faster: http://ark.intel.com/compare/76088,76086,76087
What about for gaming? Like WOW and DOTA 2 and etc?? please quote me when you reply. Should I get 2.3 or 2.6?
I don't know about those two specifically, but I think the gaming bottleneck will be the GPU, regardless of which clock speed you go for. You'd probably see a few more FPS with the faster chips, but it won't be the real limiting factor.
