    So i recently bought an early 2014 MBA. I am reading about the Mid 2014 small bump. What bump did that include? What was the processor number? My 2014 MBA has the 1.4GHz i5.

    There is no such thing as mid 2014 MBA. It's early 2014 and then it goes to early 2015.

    There isn't a mid 2014 Air; Apple calls it the early 2014, so you have the newer version. The bump was in April 2014, and then the next was in March 2015, but that's more than just a faster CPU.

    That's correct. April was the only one.

    In fact, the early 2014 revision was the minor bump of mid 2013 since all it got was +100 MHz on the Core i5 model and no change at all on the Core i7 model.

    The early 2015 model has way more changes by comparison:
    - Broadwell processor vs Haswell
    - HD 6000 graphics vs HD 5000
    - Thunderbolt 2 vs Thunderbolt 1
    - 4x PCIe 3.0 SSD on the 13" vs 2x PCIe 2.0 previously (max speed 2GB/s instead of 800MB/s)
