    Right now I have a:
    Early 2011 Macbook Pro, 2.7ghz Core i7, 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz, 256gb SSD, Intel 3000 512mb.

    If I upgraded to this Apple refurb . Would I experience a decrease in performance due to the lower clocked i5 processor? I do video editing, 3d modeling.

    The CPU should be a little bit faster on the new one. The GPU is quite a bit better as integrated GPUs have come a long way in recent years. You should be satisfied with the upgrade from your current 13'' MBP.

    If you want to know more about CPU performance, look up processor benchmarks for each configuration.
