Hey guys, First time MacBook user here and I just purchased 10 days ago or so the 2017 MBA but I upgraded the processor to the custom i7 2.2 with turbo boost to 3.2 ghz. I had been waiting a long time for the new MBA to be released but my windows PC (which I hated) started to go wonky and I had to get something so I pulled the trigger. Like always as soon as I did they came out with the new one lol. Anyway I KNOW I'm in a minority, if not the only one on the planet but I love the look of the older MBA, even the "thick" bezels everyone complains about, I know I must be crazy but beauty as they say is in the eye of the beholder . With that said I got the 2017 model with the upgraded processor through work for a discount, plus b/c apple screwed up the order they gave me a credit for my "trouble" which was nice, add this to the fact I can take it off taxes through my business and I got it for a great deal. I am still within the window to return it though (have until Wednesday this week) and want to be prudent by asking you experts what you would do. I know the new one has the wonderful Retina display but honestly on a 13" screen I'm not sure that matters to me that much. I don't like the way it looks compared to the old one aesthetically so it really comes down to the performance for me. I don't know about benchmarks and stuff except for what I've read on here but found this comparable score on Geekbench I think (see my copy and paste below). Problem is I don't know what I'm really looking at, can you guys tell me if performance wise the new one is much better or not than my i7 2.2? Everything on the 2018 model says "pending" I guess b/c it is so new. From what I'm understanding reading on here, the "y" series chip is only 7 watts, which means when it gets hot during hard tasks it would throttle correct, where my "u" series is 15 watts and has a good fan meaning my turbo boost should kick in and last? Don't know if I have that right or not which is why I'm asking, thanks for any guidance.
