Should I upgrade?

Hey Everyone,

I have a Mid 2009 MBP with a 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 8 GB of ram that I put in after the fact and a 160 GB Hard drive. I'm thinking of getting the new RMBP with the 500 SSD and 16 GB of ram with the 2.7 GHz quad-core Intel i7. The main reason I'm thing about upgrading is because I'm in the Electrical Engineering program at University at Buffalo and we do a lot of things that require using windows. So I recently installed parallels and am running it off of my external 1 TB Hard Drive. It seams to be running a little slower and is not as responsive when I am doing several things. Would it be worth it for me to buy this new RMBP and will I see a huge difference?
