    Just curious with the capping of processor speed by Apple is the Rev 1 or even Rev 2 (since thats also capped) more powerful than 12" PB. I would guess so with the dual core processor...i'd guess dual core 800Mhz is still powerful than a single 1.5G4

    without a doubt. The Intel's are MUCH faster than the Motorola PowerPCs.

    The Geekbench scores for the Rev A 1.6GHz MBA are close to 3x faster than they are for the 1.5GHz 12" PB G4. So it's not even close.
