    I've looked around a bit and am trying to understand why it seems that the
    13" Macbook Air Ultimate out scores / performes the 11" Macbook Air Ultimate?

    I see them as exactly the same hardware except for the screen.

    Someone have some insight on this issue?

    13" has more space, this better cooling which allowed the CPU to operate at higher load (i.e. more effective Turbo). AnandTech will probably have tests on the Turbo speeds to confirm this.

    Did he get any Core i7 models in, or just Core i5s?

    The graphs he linked in his Twitter suggest that he only got i5s. Maybe he will do a review of the ultimate MBA later on, like last year.
