I have noticed several brands including brands like Razor have started integrating quad core 8th generation cpus in their 13 inch laptops. The spec is 1.8 ghz quad core to 3.5 turbo. Will we ever see 13 inch mac with quad core in it. I was looking into a new computer but the new Macbook pros are Not 8th generation Nor are they quad core. It looks as if I may have to go to a windows machine if I want quad core in a smaller laptop. IT sucks but my next computer WILL be quad core wether apple decides to actually move on or not.
