As for CPU, Intel chip's year over year generally have a 20% gain on performance. This is to be expected. Keep in mind this is a 5W chip. I've noticed that even on a high end matchbook now (vs five years ago) you won't hear the fan as much, if at all, so here we have it! The age in which either we don't hear the fan or there is none. What's the difference? Well weight, sleekness, and the mobile experience. I hold my Macbook Pro and I'm like this think weights nothing, yet when I have my pack on my al over town, I'm like damn what is this think on my back? oh yeah! My backpack. Welcome to the future!

The difference is that the MacBook generates very little heat, 100% acoustic than the other MacBooks, and no fan means smaller logic board which achieves the thinness.

Disappointing, was hoping for a bigger performance gain.
