    do you think is worth the upgrade?

    i can sell my mbp for almost the same price of the low end mbp 13 2011.

    the only downgrade will be the graphics but i don't really game on it.
    i never use the dedicated 9600m gt card on my mbp, only the 9400m.

    I like the portability of the 13. i use to have a macbook couple years ago and it was much easier to put it in any bag.

    i do video editing, little bit of photo editing, watch 1080p movies on external display and usual stuff like surfing and such...

    I just want too see your opinion and hear from people who went from late 2008 mbp to 13 2011. thanks in advance

    If it's basically an even trade, go for it, especially if you don't game and like the smaller size better.

    Yes it's worth it. I went from a late 2006 to this model.

    I say go for it. In 2 years, you'll likely be able to sell the 2011 13" for more than a 5 year old 15".

    Thanks guys.
    i have been to the apple store to test the 13 and fells much faster than mine.
    i just hope the intel graphic on the current 13 is better than the nvidia 9400m.

    Yeah it's better than the 9400m. I went from a late 2008 Aluminium MacBook to a 2011 MBP.
