    First the Obvious;
    1. New AC Plugin (on both ends, wallplug is completely smooth now)
    2. Different Internal Hardware
    3. Better Battery Life
    4. Optional Higher Resolution Screens
    5. Optimus like Hybrid GPU switching

    Kinda Obvious, but some may have missed;
    1. Inertial Scrolling
    2. Little bit heavier
    3. Activity Monitor shows 4 Cores not 2

    You'd really have to look;
    1. This may just be me, but I feel as if the hinge is different, in terms of pressure right before you close it. Picture below shows a 2.8 duo left and an i5 right. I have been playing with them for a while now, and some of the other 2.8's and it seems right before you close the lid, the new i5's have more of a push required, so as to slow the force in close. That way you don't slam it closed.

    2. Wifi seems to get an active working connection quicker

    3. Microphone and Headphone input jacks have much more "snap" to them. Devices really snap in there so you know you're connected.

    Camera is a BBerry Tour
