Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 1 MB 4x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Much better performance per dollar 13.72 pt/$ vs 1.66 pt/$ More than 8.2x better performance per dollar
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.5 MB/core 2x more l2 cache per core
Marginally newer May, 2012 vs Feb, 2011 Release date over 1 years later
Slightly better overclocked clock speed (Air) 2.33 GHz vs 2.12 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
