On a theoretical level, if you also have the 8GB of RAM in the 15inch, then yes you will see improvements. Also with moving up to the 15inch you are getting the quad core i7 which effectively is doubling your processing power, provided the programs/OS is programmed to take advantage of it. I would have to assume, though perhaps incorrectly, that the Apple apps in Lion will actually be able to take advantage of most of these upgrades.

Realistically, I'd suggest taking a look at youtube and seeing what others have posted. if you are just doing Web,email,itunes, maybe movies, using iPhoto, etc. Then you probably don't need to pay the premium. Depends on the extent of multitasking/what you plan to use it for.
