A performance chart from Anandtech. The Intel CPUs being charted are each year's top-of-the-line. The measure is single-threaded, integer performance which implies its own set of applicability.

All the available (non-Apple provided) data shows even the iPhone/iPad versions of the chips are faster than the chips we previously had in any of these Macs. That's without even considering these are scaled up in terms of cores and power from the iOS versions. This is Apple's 3rd CPU transition and with the big jump in speed devs were reporting better performance on the dev kits in emulation than on the older hardware running native code in many cases. In any case, Apple's ability to move the developer community is dramatically different now versus back in the PowerPC days. In addition to Microsoft, Adobe has been very aggressive in porting its code stack over to iOS which lays the foundation for running on Apple Silicon. *Clarifications Rosetta isn't licensed, it's an Apple in-house technology. The RAM limitation might be the biggest problem but it's certainly not an Apples-to-(old) Apples comparison even when it comes to RAM.

1. Rangefinder... still hoping to do the one camera, one lens, one year exercise. 2. If I ignore my X-Pro1, then an X-Pro2. Otherwise and X-T2... or if there is also no cost from this calculation either then a GFX.

Except ISO is a word derived from the Greek isos meaning equal and not an initialism of the organization name which is the International Organization for Standardization.

Generally, I would think the benefit of high speed cards is more in getting images off the card quickly versus onto the card quickly. The write speeds would be more relevant for 4k high bitrate video.
Looks like B&H is discounting the unit because it was stocked before the release of Mavericks. Still current generation hardware, so it is a good deal at $45 less than a refurbished unit. Caveat emptor, memory cannot be upgraded on these so it's 4GB for the life of the unit.

Might be jumping the gun a bit if February 2014 is your deadline. A new round of iMacs and MacBook Pros should be out before the year is out. A much better decision to wait and choose once everything is on the same CPU revision.

FYI. Despite the list price, the EOS-M w/18-55 + Speedlite is up for pre-order at $879 or $829 w/the 22 f/2 at Canadian chain Vistek. Didn't see the kits listed at B&H.
Despite the continuing prevalence of prints among photographers, I would argue for the general populace the modern analog of negatives to print is now on your computer to online. In both cases the goal is to present the capture to an audience. This is one of the major reasons for the popularity of smartphone cameras. They have achieved "good enough" quality with massive improvements in ease-of-use, and connectivity. There are inevitable sacrifices in ease-of-use as one moves up the hardware chain, but the elimination of connectivity features 5 years after the release of the first iPhone is becoming inexcusable.
