2011 MacBook Air i5 vs. 2010 MacBook Pro: Performance & Benchmarks

The brand new 2011 MacBook Air’s are surprisingly powerful with the Intel Core i5/i7 processors when compared to their older Core 2 Duo siblings. 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 🙁

    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

    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.

    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.

    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?
