2011 MBA Specs
I keep read (http://www.anandtech.com/show/4512/t...cs-and-details) that the 2011 MBA has a sandy bridge processor i7 in it. But I thought all the Sandy Bridge processors were quad core. Or are these just last years i5/i7 processors from the MBP line?

The i5 and i7 are both physically dual-core in the Macbook Air. However, they both feature hyperthreading technology; this tech essentially allows each core to double-up to be like it is two cores instead (not quite as good as actually having two physical cores, but two hyper threaded cores are still good). So it's a quad-core after hyper threading is taken into account.
It's a great processor (well, all of them are) in the Sandy Bridge line.
