    What do you want explained? Th i7 rendered faster. He said that the import time was probably slower because of the HD speed difference.

    You need to read up on how individual components influence a computer's performance before you let things like this "shock and aww" you.

    Of course the C2D is going to import the video faster since it has a faster hard drive. You'd be amazed at the performance difference a 7200rpm drive has over a 5400rpm drive in these machines. I'd bet money that if you through an identical SSD drive in both those machines, the i5 and i7 MBP's would dominate the C2D.

    The real CPU test in this case was the rendering, which the i7 clearly won.

    The title of your post should read, "WTF 7200rpm HDD Faster than 5400rpm HDD in MBP's". In which case the proper response would be, "duh...".
