Default new/refurbished macbook pro 13 2012, or refurbished 15 2011

I am looking into a new computer, specifically a Macbook Pro. I currently have a 2006 White iMac Core2Duo 2.16 with 4GB RAM and the X1600, as well as an HP DV5-1125NR AMD Turion RM72 Mobile 2.1GHZ, 4GB RAM, HD3200 graphics. Both of these run my LightRoom application pretty well. I myself am looking for portability, great battery life, and good performance. I narrowed my choices down to these two computers listed above. The Macbook Pro 13" would be the 2.9GHZ Dual Core 4MB L3 i7, 750GB HDD (I probably will upgrade this to an SSD later), 8GB RAM (Upgrade to 16GB later), Intel HD 4000, and the USB 3.0 ports. The 15" is the late October 2011 model, it includes the 2.4GHZ Quad Core 6MB L3 i7, 4GB RAM (Upgrade much later, more budget money is gone), Intel HD 3000+AMD RADEON 6770M 1GB Card, minus the USB 3.0 ports. I myself am not a very active gamer, I occasionally play games on MiniClip, and thats about it. I am a photography-enthusiast, I shoot for the yearbook at my school and do edit photos on LightRoom 4 (primarily on my iMac because of the screen resolution, etc.) and would only do it if it were really necessary at the time being; my two computers I currently use run it pretty well without much lag. I am not a videographer, nor plan to do anything in that respect. I just want the best computer that will get me through my last two years of highschool and into college for papers, presentations, and that stuff. Are the refurbished Apple products any good, are they just like new or what? All suggestions, knowledge, and experience are welcome! Thanks all, I am trying to get this for a birthday gift because my older computers are not as good as I would like them.
