    Hi I hope you can help me.

    I have a macbook pro 15 Early 2011, 2,2 GHz intel Core i7

    8GB 1333 MHz, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024

    I have a Samsung 840, 512 GB SSD drive installed.

    My question is, I am thinking of buying af Macbook pro 13 late 2013 retina i5. 8G memory and With 256 GB SSD but will it be slower than my macbook pro 15 early 2011

    If Iook at Geekbench 3 the results are like this

    My 15 inch Macbook pro early 2011 scores 2809 in singlecore and 10455 in multicore

    The Late 2013 macbook pro 13 inch i5 scores 2948 in singlecore and 6187 in multicore.

    The programmes i use most Mail, word, Excel, safari, Iphoto, Imovie, I am not editing pictures and vidoes very often. Its is only small movies of kids and family.

    Is the macbook pro 15 inch early 2011 faster than the late retina 2013 13 i5

    Which programes uses singlecores and which programes uses multicores ?

    sorry for my bad english.

    Is it a waist of money to upgrade to 13 macbook pro retina late 2013 ?

    Thanks, Kasper Grufstedt

    If you can, I'd go with this MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013) - Technical Specifications a key difference over the "13 version is i7 and 16GB RAM support.

    Or if your current system supports it, go up to 16GB RAM. I have an Early 2011 17" MBP, and increased RAM from 8 to 16GB last year. That made an improvement.
