    Was over in the Air forum looking for some info on benchmarks and came across a thread where a guy had done some benchmarking showing the 13" 2010 Pro coming up short against the new Air. Curious if Apple did some further graphics tweaking / over clocking on the Air that hasn't made it to the Pro. Or the guy using the Pro didn't apply the summer graphics patch. I emailed him to ask.

    Either way, interesting figures...

    Maybe the MBA has a newer firmware that leads to better performance. Or the 320m is higher clocked.

    The MBA seems to get hotter than the MBP 13.

    SSD doesn't improve fps.
