SDHC Transfer Speeds

I own a 60D and currently use a simple usb card reader to transfer my files onto a media drive and log and transfer into FCP.

I'm considering either purchasing a new MacBook Pro or iMac i7 with SD card slot. Anyone know if there's an increase in transfer speed through the SD slot as opposed to usb?

Thanks,

Forrest

Not as far as I can tell with my testing. There are differences in the transfer rate of external usb readers and the built in reader but nothing that would make you choose one over the other from a performance standpoint. The limitation for transferring speed from an SDHC card isn't in the interface (usb, firewire etc.) its in the media. The tests I ran (below) get a little jumbled in the post. Interestingly though the Class 10 write speeds are much faster while their read speeds are the same or worse.
