GHC build times on newer MacBook Pros?

I'm looking to upgrade my laptop so that I can (among other things)
compile GHC faster. I'll either get the 13" 2.7GHz dual-core Intel
Core i7 model or the 15" 2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 model. Anyone
know if it's worth to get the 15" model? According to these benchmarks
it should be quite a bit faster:

but I don't know if I can get enough parallelism out of GHC's build to
use all 4 cores in the 15" model.
