    I use to use a 15 inch 2.2 c2d mbp in 06. I'm getting a new 13 inch non retina mbp. How do they compare? Im not talking gpu or screen size. Just general computing.

    Generally, the i5 and i7 processors are much more capable than their Core2 Duo predacessors.

    There's a huge difference. I went from a late 2006 MacBook (2.0GHz C2D, aside from the GPU, not much slower than yours) to a 2012 13" non-retina MBP and it was a huge jump. Even simple things like browsing the web and using Office are much snappier. If you go by Geekbench scores, you're looking at 2.5'ish times faster.

    You will see a good jump in performance. I wend from a 2010 MBP to a new one and found the performance increase to be very noticeable.

    How do you all feel the integrated hd 4000 graphics compare to the gpu of those older models?

    You don't have to feel it... benchmarks in this case are clear as day.
    A GPU from 2006 is no doubt slower than any of today's integrated GPUs ( generally speaking of course ).
