    Would it be worth trading my 2011 mbp and my 07 black macbook for a 15' retina macbook pro?

    That's a decision that you must make yourself. In terms of performance I doubt you will see too much difference between your 2011 mbp and the Retina, but probably will see noticeable differences between it and your Macbook. While I can't tell you yes or no in terms of the purchase, I will say that I love my Retina Macbook Pro and do recommend it.

    I think it's really a coin flip. IMO the next rMBP-15 will likely be the keeper so I bought a 2011 cMBP-15 last week to wait it out. I think I bought it cheaply enough that I can wait and not take a depreciation hit, but still get a HUGE performance & feature step up from my old C2D wMB-13. But in your case, if you can swap both out even, you're likely to take the same depreciation hit if you want to flip into a Haswell rMBP in a year or two. So I would probably go for it.
