Good news! That means the new MacBook airs are coming soon...
Except for the CPU-freq and L3-cache, does anyone know if there are any other difference between the i5 and i7 models?
I don't know that much about Intels processors, just want to know if there are any difference or if Intel is just using the i7 name for the higher end CPU:s.
i7 is clocked at a higher frequency.anyway,It is just a method of grading levels.
Anandtech have posted their preview/review:
Edit: On the HD4000
On battery life
Note: The i5-2410M is a full 35 W dual core SNB CPU. I am very impressed that a ULV 17W chip matches it in performance.
Yeah, but if you buy the MBA Retina display rumors they still have design issues to settle before releasing new MBAs. I still don't really understand the "power issues" the article references, so I have no idea how difficult it will be to settle this design issue.
Things do sometimes get pushed off to a different hardware generation. Beside that, I doubt the validity of those "leaks". It's more likely that someone thought it would make a good story as it seems to match a current trend that initiated with the idevices.
I really hope apple doesn't go with Retina, I am not buying one anyways, but the graphics performance will be terrible with Retina included. The Ipad 3 has problems, I dont even want to know how the macbooks would react to such a high resolution. Of course this is coming from a gamer.
I'm not too convinced about "retina" displays being added - well at least not pixel doubling. In the iPad 3, the battery size was increased by 70% to achieve the same life (or similar) to iPad 2. Will this be possibly in an MBA? I just don't know.
what do you guys think about the latest MBA released? Any of these issues resolved?
