Have not seen any benchmarks on the iSeries in the new MBA. Intel only announced them a little over 2 weeks ago.

But, first off, the iSeries flat out performs the C2D by a fair margin on every test I've seen at a similar clock speeds.

Secondly, the i7 in the new MBA is a hyperthreaded chip - meaning 4 threads vs 2 threads of the older C2D of the last MBA. I would be surprised to see a benchmark of the two chips you're talking about and not see the i7 stomp the C2D by a margin of somewhere around 50%.

Of course if you're using it for a email, internet, office machine... that won't really matter.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
