    I (jokingly) guessed it might be an early 22mm Montevina, but they have larger caches:

    SL9400 (1.86GHz, 6MB, 17W, 1,066MHz FSB)
    SL9300 (1.6GHz, 6MB, 17W, 1,066MHz FSB)

    Doing a 22mm Memrom would have helped Intel validate the packaging.

    AnandTech: Uncovering Intel's Custom CPU for Apple UPDATED

    It appears that AnandTech has done a bit more digging about which processor is used in the MacBook Air.

    Take a look at this article.

    They also discuss the specifications and its intended market. A nice read.

    Enjoy :)

    I'm still waiting for a CPU-Z or Intel CPUID report in OS X. Apple's Developer Notes do mention SSE4.

    In that case it it shouldn't be a Merom but I still think it is. I doubt it is a mobile Penryn though but nontheless it is interesting :D

    Actually it mentions SSSE4, which is likely a typo (note that Merom has SSE3 and SSSE3).
