Well what's the MacBook Air numbers?
Which MacBook Air? I5? I7? 11"? 13"?
Dual Core i5 (1.3Ghz-1.4Ghz) 13". Macbook Air is around 5,000.
Nice find, it hit geekbench. But nothing is confirmed yet.
Seems pretty comparable to a mid-2011 i5 MacBook Air.
Well you can wait till they tear it down to further confirm it..
The user who uploaded it pretty reliable I think. http://browser.primatelabs.com/user/naaajsboy
Holy Crap! I did not see that coming. We are really getting closer to desktop class.
so is the iPad air 2 considered the 5th generation?
It's a shame the software isn't.
All this power and so limited in what you can do with the device....time to show some improvements on the blown up mobile phone OS please >.<
Something has to give.
Apple has to be careful with performance vs battery life hit. Sure make the mobile phone os more desktop like. It will kill the ipad battery life. Apple has to make sacrifices.
Also ipad doesn't want to kill off the macbook air. It's by far the best selling consumer laptop in its line. Apple very careful not to cross that line.
The danger is that if Apple doesn't do it, someone else might do it for them. The official line from Apple is that they aren't afraid to kill their old businesses to start new ones. Of course everyone says that until it isn't true.
I would not be surprised to see a quad A9X in the retina MBA.
EXACTLY the reason I've decided to sell my iPad Air (128GB cellular) and get a retina MacBook pro instead (and an iPad Mini 2nd gen). I love the tablet form factor, but it's just too limited in what it can do. I've tried to use it as a go-anywhere computer, but it's too large and I'd prefer a mini.
Aiming to get a MacBook at home and an iPad mini as a go anywhere device, and hope in the future they improve the Air's software to be more capable like a mac, rather than just a blown up iPhone OS.
Games. Apps like Pixelmator.
This is huge, it can open the potential to Apple porting over their desktop apps such as Xcode.
This is all about potential...
