    It's newer, faster and better. :D

    Seriously, it's been asked across all the Mac Forum forums for weeks, so do a search and you'll know more then Intel does.

    First off: It is NOT a harddrive

    Now, simply put, it is a new chipset set.

    A chipset manages the data that goes from the processor to the memory, to the storage, to the video, etc. It's like the ECU of a car; manages the stuff and makes everything go smooth.
