Better overall computing power: SSD vs. HDD?

I have an old macbook (late 2009) with an aftermarket Samsung 840 Pro Series SSD installed. I recently purchased a discounted Macbook Pro (Mid 2012) with an 2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor. I'm wondering which has better overall computing power? Thanks in advance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First problem, you bought a MacBook…

The only good side that I see from your description is that it has an SSD hard drive, which are much faster than the standard platter hard drives.

    On which system did you feel to work comfortably. One is 2009 with ssd type disk, assuming either 120gb/ 128gb while other one is mid 2012 with processor like core i7, and think hdd is installed much more capacity than ssd. Not possible to compare like that, better you can work on any system, as you feel good.
