What are your goals here? Is the systems weight your concern?

You got a pretty sweet rig now. While it's not the fastest CPU it's no slouch. Keep in mind this system is serviceable unlike the current gen of the MacBook Pro's. Swapping out of the optical drive to another SSD is not a bad idea to keep in mind you may have an issue with the SATA port. Review this: OWC Data Doubler check your system in the notes.
