Yeah... the solid state model beats my late 2007 MBP 2.2 Ghz with a 7200 RPM HDD and 4 Gigs of RAM. In graphics my computer edges it out by a bit, and in computation either I'm slightly ahead, or in some cases like the computation test the MBA blows me out of the water. As far as the disks test goes my MBP has better write speeds, but the MBA destroys me in read speed. I thought that the MBA was cool, but too underpowered for my needs. With the new graphics chipset and upgraded bus speeds, plus a bigger solid state drive, I find myself seriously rethinking that. Maybe my next laptop will be an air.
