    how much is better at gaming is the 2011 15in mbp with

    versus a base mba 13 (2012)? I'm assuming for everyday use performance is the same?

    haha sorry. yeah i know the 15 in will be better, but I'm just trying to gauge how much better it is. would I be able to run AC3, skyrim, nba on decent settings? I'm trying to figure out if the mbps worth a trade...

    You're comparing a dedicated graphics card to an integrated one. I think that's all the answer you need.

    The ATI 6770m is roughly 2.5 times more powerful in benchmarks.

    Lots better. Not even funny. Going from a 13inch to a 15inch was like a completely different computer. If gaming is your thing, get the 15. Plus the bigger screen helps
