Yesterday, while figuring out which laptop to sell, I was comparing my wife's 2010 MBP 13" 2.4 GHz C2D to my 2011 MBP 13" 2.3 GHz i5. They both also were upgraded with SSD drives. Side by side, I swear they are just about the same speed (boot up, launching apps like all from iLife, MS Office, Safari, Chrome, Mail, etc). From what I had read benchmark-wise, I would have expected my 2011 to blow her 2010 away. But is it fair to conclude that the SSD drive has more to do with general speed of the computer than the processor? I didn't tax them with rendering or other processor intensive programs yet I guess ...maybe that's where I'd notice a difference?
