    hi guys (and girls) :)

    i have a mbp 13 non retina (i5 2,5ghz and 8gb ram) mid 2012 and it come with standart 500gb hdd 5400rpm then i swap with my ssd 256gb but now i considering about upgrading to the 480/512gb SSD for my office work (word, excel, pdf, lite photoshop things), browsing and playing some game(s) (SC2, DOTA 2, LoL, Diablo3) is it worth or should i upgrade to the 15 retina or at least 15 mbp classic?

    so far i have no complain about my mbp everything is just ok

    any suggestion will be really appreciated, thx

    If you intend on playing games the 13" MBP's integrated GPU is ill suited for such tasks. If that's a major thing for you, then yeah sell the MBP and buy a 15" MBP.

    Personally, short of the game performance, I'd say keep the MBP and throw in an SSD since the machine is so new but its really up to you and how important playing games is in your list of priorities.

    thx a lot for your reply, games r not my top priority as long as it can run the game(s) then is ok for me and that my game list are really running smooth on my mbp with native res (medium to low quality) :)

    so SSD is the right answer then :)
