Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 65 nm vs 90 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
More l2 cache 1 MB vs 0.5 MB 2x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Lower typical power consumption 17.88W vs 25.19W Around 30% lower typical power consumption
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.7 GHz vs 2.35 GHz Around 15% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Lower annual home energy cost 5.3 $/year vs 7.47 $/year Around 30% lower annual home energy cost
Lower annual commercial energy cost 19.27 $/year vs 27.16 $/year Around 30% lower annual commercial energy cost
