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.

I'm waiting foe thunderbolt and MacSafe and an additional USB-C would be nice as well....

Disappointing, was hoping for a bigger performance gain.

You must mean the old macs from the beginning of the 21st century compared to modern macs that are beastly! I own the 2011 MacBook Pro with data doubler with owc ssd's, ram, and external USB 3 drives I steered into every single USB port. The result? Results load in the blink of an eye on ANY application. A bit slowed down when it comes to more apps opened, but still, unstoppable, LAWLXDXDXD

Not to mention modern MacBook's Pro's and Mac Pro itself that can turbo boost to 3Ghz!
