Which is faster, a new MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz i7 processor, or a prior-generation MacBook Air with 2.13 GHz Core 2 Duo?
I'm wondering if this would be a step down or a step up in speed and processing power. Both have a 256GB hard drive and 4GB of RAM – although I believe there's also a bump to the type of RAM (from 1067 to 1333 MHz) and the graphics card.
This computer is used for programming and development, running IDEs and virtualization when necessary. Gaming isn't important.
