    Would I notice a significant different if I were to upgrade to the latest 15" Mac Book Pro (top model) over my 2010 model? Particularly in terms of Final Cut Pro & video editing.

    My 2010 Model:
    15-inch, Mid 2010, MacBook Pro
    Processor 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7
    Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB
    Note: Have a SSD as main drive & a 2nd drive in the Optical bay slot.

    - Mac Book Pro 15"
    - 2.7GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
    - 128GB Solid State Drive

    Yes, the processor is much more powerful and if you decide to put an SSD in, it will run at SATA 3 speeds.

    thanks - noticing I my current MacBookPro in Final Cut Pro X that the video I'm now getting at higher resolution from my new GoPro is a bit shuddery (it's video at 1080p 50fps in Final Cut Pro). Hopefully a new MacBook Pro would solve this?

    I note the GoPro video plays fine in VLC, but in QuickTime or FinalCutPro it shudders a bit (like the program is not keeping up)
