New Mac Book or old mac book pro?

I have a first generation single core 17" mac book pro (2.16 Ghz - 2GM ram X1600 w.256 mb vram).
My question is this,
I use Maya and photoshop allot so video performance is very important to me.
I don't want to spend what they are asking for a new 17" but the local shop will take my 17" in trade towards a new laptop and I was wondering this:
Is the new 13" mack book as good as my 2 year old+ mac pro? I know if will take more ram which would be nice and I am kind of partial to the smaller overall size since I ride my bicycle to work allot now.
No one can really answer if the new machine (MAc book) would be better than the 17" Mack Pro I have.
On the specs and surface it seems better but i want some more expert opinions!

- 4.1 Mac Pro. 15" MBP. 13" MBP. 17" PB. PM G5. iPhone 6S+ 64gb Gold. Apple Watch 42mm.
processor and ram wise, the new 13 uni will be better. But, I have seen all photoshop processes running on the new 9400m and there isn't really anything to complain about. I would pick the new 15 though. the top model adds the 9600m gt with 512 of memory ram.
