Much newer manufacturing process 22 nm vs 65 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Significantly higher clock speed 3.5 GHz vs 2.66 GHz More than 30% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.69 GHz vs 3.07 GHz Around 55% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
More threads 8 vs 4 Twice as many threads
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 4.8 GHz vs 2.67 GHz More than 80% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
