I am thinking of purchasing the current 13" classic Macbook Pro (without retina) to replace my current late-2008 Macbook5,1. I thought that since the current cMBP model is 4 years older than mine, it would provide a noticable improvement, but after comparing the specs I am starting to think that the newer model will only offer modest improvements. Would someone more experienced with these things please give me their opinion on the major differences between the 2 macbooks? These specs seem fairly equivalent: They both have 13" screens with a resolution of 1280x800. They both weigh 4.5 lbs. I have 8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3B in my 2008 MB, while/ the cMBP takes up to 8 GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory. They can take the same HDs and SSDs so no difference in storage either. -- The following specs are different: The cMBP has: - 802.11n Wi-Fi wireless networking;4 IEEE - 802.11a/b/g compatible - Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology The 2008 MB has: - Integrated AirPort Extreme 802.11a/b/g/draft-n (BCM4322 chipset) - Gigabit Ethernet - Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR - The cMBP has Intel HD Graphics 4000, while the 2008 MB has an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB. My 2008 MB has the 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (P8600). The cMBP has 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with 3MB L3 cache (3210M). So my interpretation is that display will basically look the same, and everything will be roughly the same but the CPU will be a little faster. How much that will be noticeable, I have no idea... Is this conclusion accurate?
