New MBA Benchmark Figures

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know if there any any benchmark figures for the new 13" Air? I'm thinking of getting one to replace a 13" MBP and am curious if it's worth spending the extra on the i7 CPU.

    It's either the Air or a 15" MBP...decisions, decisions.

    Thanks in advance.

    Huh, that statement doesn't make sense. The i7 should be the same regardless of screen size?

    if you spent some time actually reading the article he linked to you would notice performance is up 22% over the base 11" and only 8-11% improvement in the 13" model. which would be hard to notice in anything except for benchmarks.

    Right, but the i5 in the 13 is more powerful than in the 11.
