    Not really sure what you are asking, do you want to take the SSD from one machine and put it in the other???

    Ok as long as the older one is late 2013 or later it should work fine, the new one may well be 2x as fast as the older one though.

    I never heard anyone wanting a much slower Hdd instead of SSD. Confusing

    They are both retina MBP's so both SSD's I just think this person has a very limited understanding of their hardware.

    The HDD (as you call it) in the retina machines is all flash storage it has no moving parts and a drop is unlikely to damage it unlike the old style HDD's with spinning disks.
