    There is a video on youtube of someone with the i7 quad 2.3ghz running geekbench and he scored like 11495 or something. If you compare that to what the i7 quad 2.2ghz got(like 10500) then you can see it got a bump but not as much as jumping from 2.0ghz to 2.2ghz

    128 GB. I am doing the optical drive conversion and running just the OS on the ssd and keeping my media on the 1 TB drive.

    is it cheaper doing it in that order (HDD in main slot, ssd in optical slot) rather than getting the SSD model and then installing a TB in the optical drive?

    Its not any cheaper. The data doubler bracket can be used for either drive.

    Ahh, it looks as though you can only fit a 9.5mm thick hdd in the optical drive bracket.
