    Because the rMB is using a low clocked low power processor designed to be used in a fan-less environment without overheating. This is to get the ultra thin and light design and the great battery life, and yes technology has changed a lot in 4 years and this computing power and battery life would never have been possible with old tech, the chips required cooling and space and a lot of battery power to run at that performance.

    In short the new rMB is a marvel of modern engineering even if you can't appreciate it.
