    I'm considering upgrading my MBP 13" (2010) to the latest MBP 13" (2012). I have a few quick questions:

    1. Going from a C2D processor to a Core-i7, how much of a boost can I expect from this? (50%, 100%, 200%) I envision it to be a dramatic boost but would like some empirical evidence as well.
    2. Has anyone swapped in an opti-bay caddy to replace the optical drive in the new MBP13?
    3. What speed does the SATA connection for the DVD-drive work off of?

    Thanks in advance!

    A quick search on Geekbench gives a 2010 13" MBP (2.4GHz) a score of 3818.

    An equally quick search gives a 2012 13" MBP (i5 model) a score of 7295 and the i7 model 8626.

    Geekbench is typically dependant solely upon the CPU, so fairly representative.

    Should be SATA3 in both HD/SSD and Superdrive bays but I could be wrong.

    I already think my 2010 MBP with SSD is fast, the 2012s must be mind blowing. Have fun!
