    Are there any benchmarks? I have looked and most are testing the new one with SSD versus the old one with HD? I am looking for some comparisons of the HD versus HD and 1.6 versus 1.6.

    Want to get a true idea of the differences in the machines..

    Any help would be appreciated..

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if you've seen these, but the Geekbench scores are:

    Jan 2008 Air
    1.6GHz: 2023

    October 2008 Air
    1.6GHz: 2245

    For comparison that's about on par with the original MacBook (2298).

    The Air has a far better integrated graphics chip.

    So when you compare apples to apples there is not much difference..

    11% by my calculations..

    Mmm…

    There are other factors.

    Having a Mini Display Port vs MicroDVI arguably an advantage for future compatibility.
