Report a correction
Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 2.66 GHz Around 25% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much lower typical power consumption 44.69W vs 77.19W More than 40% lower typical power consumption
Better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.43 GHz vs 3.07 GHz More than 10% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much lower annual home energy cost 13.25 $/year vs 22.89 $/year More than 40% lower annual home energy cost
Much lower annual commercial energy cost 48.18 $/year vs 83.22 $/year More than 40% lower annual commercial energy cost
Better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.46 GHz vs 2.67 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
