    I found out my friend got a MBP 13 Base model (the one before thunderbolt). it has 4gb ram, 2.4 core 2, and etc. my MacBook air ultimate 13 inch has 4 gb ram, 2.13 ghz core 2, now I dont even think there is much of a difference

    Your MacBook air should perform faster on most things unless he has a SSD as well. The only time his will really be quicker is when doing CPU intensive stuff.
