    Hi people,

    I'm looking at upgrading my 3 year old Macbook (2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB ram, late 2007 model). Although I was looking forward to the release of the new MBA, their clock speeds seem worse than that of my 3 year old Macbook!

    Therefore, I'm tossing between getting a MBA or wait until the release of the new 13" Macbook Pro (hopefully in a few months time).

    My question is, Does my old macbook really outperform the new MBAs?

    Cheers,

    N

    Probably. But, are you looking for the bto models or just the cto models? And is ultimate portability something you are looking for?

    Only in raw processing speeds. Overall, the MBA is nearly as fast as the new MacBook Pro i5. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1038895

    It will, as soon as you put an SSD in there. :)
