    Hi folks,

    I have a bootcamp partition on my mid 2012 Macbook Pro that I would very much like to keep if I buy a new MacBook Pro 2018 mod (or a used 2015).
    Is this possible?

    And is it a remarkable difference in power from a mid 2012 i7 SSD macbook to the new ones?
    I am using it for music production so RAM and CPU is of importance.

    Thanks for all help!

    Probably not possible although you could try with WinClone. The reason it may not be possible is because of the hardware change. New drivers would be required in order to run Windows on the new or newer MacBook Pro. The Boot Camp drivers that you're currently using with your 2012 MacBook Pro are not likely going to work with a later model.

    Your second question about the difference in power between a 2012 i7 MacBook Pro and a newer one equipped the same is obvious. Newer is going to be more powerful and more expensive. ;)
