    i am using the first generation macbook air of 1.6 ghz and core 2 duo. The new 11.6 macbook air spec is 1.4 ghz and same 2gb ram. Is my mba comparable in terms of speed to the new macbook air? i always had a problem when watching HD video or youtube when it start to get hot. The video will be laggy and jerky and i have to cool it down a while and then is ok.

    This new machine will run circles around your first generation performance wise. I have a third gen and my new 11.6 MBA runs over that one as well.
    Apple has unleashed a mini beast with the new model.

    the processor is ULV instead of LV so will run alot cooler!

    and the GPU is improved so it can handle 1080p flash videos now!

    I am also upgrading from a base model Rev A MBA and decided to go with the 11.6" -- from everything I have read and from my own Apple Store fiddling with it it seems that this will be a *significant* upgrade.

    Now if only mine would leave Kentucky where it has been sitting for 2 days.
