Report a correction
Much higher clock speed 3.3 GHz vs 1.73 GHz More than 90% higher clock speed
Has a built-in GPU Yes vs No Somewhat common; A separate graphics adapter is not required
Much newer manufacturing process 32 nm vs 45 nm A newer manufacturing process allows for a more powerful, yet cooler running processor
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 3.42 GHz vs 1.73 GHz Around 2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 3.37 GHz vs 1.73 GHz Around 95% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
Newer Jan, 2011 vs Feb, 2010 Release date 10 months later
