How does the 13" MBA's processor fair against the MBP's?

    Is it any much of a difference? I've got a mid 2009 13" MBP which is a 2.2ghz C2D. Is the 1.8 GHZ of the 13" MBA's much slower? It does have 6mb cache though vs my MBP's 3mb. I do some bootcamp gaming such as MW2 and SC2.

    I would go for the 2.16Ghz MBA, because it has a 256Gb SSD which would be nice for a bootcamp machine, and because you really wouldn't be giving up much in terms of speed. I don't game, so I couldn't tell you how it does for that, however, being a programmer I can tell you that it will KILL your battery life (you probably already know this though). Overall, the MBA is a nice machine, and I would definitely try one at the Apple store first.
