    Hi guys,

    I currently have a 2010 model MacBook Pro. When I had it was a breeze to use but over time has become slow and I find it struggles with some tasks, even after cleaning the system with Onyx.

    I'm currently debating whether to upgrade. I use my current laptop every day for Internet, email, music, movies and to play some graphic intensive games.

    Would you recommend me upgrade? How noticeable would the speed bump be?

    If you don't mind a 13" screen, get the 13" Retina MacBook Pro. The Intel Iris Graphics would more than likely be enough for you. For screen size, you could always get a separate flat panel monitor for your gaming, and get an Apple Keyboard and a Magic Trackpad or Mouse. But, if you don't mind spending an $700 on the 15" Retina Model, that will more than serve your needs from a power standpoint. :)
