    congrats!

    keep it safe; look into getting a shell case or good bag for it if you're going to be moving around with it a lot.

    otherwise, enjoy! ^^

    would it have been worth it for the 2.2ghz model?

    OK just did a geegbench on it and I got 9621 on battery and 9632 plugged in I'm happy with that score.

    My MP is running at 15005 and my iMAC 11749

    This is just perfect

    Will the SSD be beneficial for starting and what would be reccomended as well dos and don'ts when changing out drive and what drive to use?

    The momentus xt is an inexpensive alternative to ssd if you are looking for app launch speed.

    congratulations.

    the more you tell us, the more we can help. so far, your question about the ssd is something like asking if a porsche would be faster than a prius. yes, but...
