Higher clock speed 2.4 GHz vs 2 GHz Around 20% higher clock speed
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.17 GHz vs 2.38 GHz Around 35% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Newer Oct, 2007 vs Mar, 2005 Release date over 2 years later
More cores 2 vs 1 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.61 GHz vs 2 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Slightly better PassMark score 1,384 vs 447 More than 3x better PassMark score
Slightly better performance per watt 1.49 pt/W vs 0.82 pt/W More than 80% better performance per watt
