    What was the last year of the HDD MBPs? Was it 2012? Was there ever a model that eliminated the optical drive but still had the HDD? Or did they dump both at the same time? Thanks.

    Couldn't you find this out using a search engine?

    No

    Yes, I searched. As you can see I came up with an answer and was looking for confirmation. If it was so irritating for you to reply I would've preferred you just kept on scrolling. But you did give me my answer, so thank you.

    OP:

    I'm not sure it makes sense to buy an older MBP now, just to get the built-in Superdrive.
    Better to buy the more-recent MBP's, and get an external USB-powered drive.

    Of course, only you know your own needs, so then again, you may need a CD/DVD drive often enough to justify buying the "old tech" MBP … ;)

    It's for a separate project. I want to replace the HDD with an SSD but don't care about the optical drive.

    You can replace the optical drive with another hard drive (or SSD) if you like.

    Just as an additional piece of info unrelated to MacBook Pros, the pre-2010 MacBook Airs were available with hard drives but not with optical drives.
