In this video I compare the performance of the all new 2011 Core i5 MacBook Air to my older 2010 Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro with Geekbench, Final Cut Pro X, and a mass opening of 30+ applications simultaneously.

@Niggamaster This is what happens:
1) A company has a good idea but does not market it very well so their product does not sell as much as anticipated
2) Apple comes along, copies the idea and takes all the credit for it
3) Mac fanboys think Apple is innovative and the best at everything. Apple market themselves very good so they sell more
4) Companies continue to produce the same idea or copy the original company. People think they r copying Apple.
Macbook Air is a copy of the Sony X505

I liked this review but keep in mind that the air has the i5 so it says it’s 1.8 but can use turbo boost it’s on the MacBook plus it has more cores meaning it takes advantage of all of those features pulse the ssd is unfair to much of advantage on airs part 🙁

5portfreak says:

im getting an air or pro for christmas the pro looks better on paper but all the videos i watch the air does better so should i get the air?

BlueishLightz says:

Would the macbook air run minecraft in30FPS ? Or atleast 20 – 30?

FreeblasTech says:

It’s normal that Macbook Air 2011 with SSD is faster than a Macbook Pro 2010 with hard drive. Try to install an SSD in the macbook pro and repeat all your tests

32youlube says:

how much RAM do your macbook pro have in this video??

gage9600 says:

@TheP3rre is FLASH no ssd

ultimatepoketrainer7 says:

rats i am using a 2.4 GHZ core 2 duo macbook pro

domodomo43 says:

So are they both new

ALittleNooby says:

Ill take your pro if you think it is that bad.

JSantana319 says:

Hey Prince, I have a question, how are the speakers in the Macbook Air compared to the 13 inch Macbook Pro?

xpaintballxpr says:

@TheP3rre is a 7200 rpm faster?

esmith0507 says:

All these tests were because of the ssd not necessarily the new processor. The i5 did help alot, but these tests mostly proved the ssd’s performance compared to the 5400 rpm hard disk.

TheR4C says:

@tarzfx Pro, is better if you doing it for a living and you depend on it 😛

socalyazziboo says:

I have the air its really fast and i dont have problems with editing or anything like its a really GREAT laptop!!!

tarzfx says:

So, a Mac Air would be better for speed, but what about if you are an editor that edits CoD, will the Pro or Air win in that situation?

j0404t says:

I have a 2010 macbook pro 2.4 core 2 duo, do you think the new MBA 13 i5 will have better battery life?

churchlady638 says:

thank you for showing this test

thedude1999ify says:

i have 2011 MBP

Terd2402 says:

I wonder if the MacBook air new 2011 i5 are able to handle YouTube HD easily and a lot of tabs open with a few other programs open as well. I really want an air but not if it’s too slow.

jcytee071 says:

@mrdizaster98

Ya but that would be an “upgrade”, so the test wouldn’t be accurate, and I have the OWC 240GB 6G SSD which would crush most Macbook Pro’s with SSD lol. What mac do you have?

mrdizaster98 says:

MBP would blow MBA if it had SSD.
