    What's the significant difference between those two chips in a 13' MBA and MBP?

    think about it this way, its easy to understand

    year 1 core 2 duo
    year 2 i3/i5/i7
    year 3 i3/i5/i7 2nd gen

    its a 3 year old processor ;p, thats the difference

    (and the laptops will be upgraded to ivy bridge processors soon) which means third gen i5s. 16-20% increase between current and future upgrade
