    Macbook Air Specs Comparison
    Dear Gurus, I'm looking at replacing my current late 2010 Macbook Air - it struggles these days - (specs: OS High Sierra 10.13.6; Processor: 2.13 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo; Memory: 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3; Storage: 250.79 GB SSD; Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256Mb). I use my laptop for mostly DTP using Adobe CC (not video, music or web design) and often have several applications open at once. My problem is I’ve no idea what the seemingly endless choice of configurations signify: eg I realise one of the following has twice the storage capacity but what’s the difference in performance terms between a 'Dual i7 2.2GHz; 8GB Ram Speed LPDDR3 1600MHz; 512GB Intel HD 6000’ Macbook Air and one described as having 'Intel Core i5 dual-core CPU @ 1.6GHz; 256GB PCIe-based SSD; 8GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory’? Should I consider a quad core processor for better future-proofing (re multi-tasking, say)? Or is that overkill for my purposes? Advice gratefully received

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    Thankyou badshoehabit (aka Sue) V useful link. If I read it aright shows that the late 2018 model scores 3 times the performance of my current late 2010 one - amazing!
