 And the top end Macbook is 1.3 Ghz.  If you do the simple math the top end Macbook will perform more like the ASUS than the Lenovo. It should bench in pretty close the to 2015 MBA and the 2012 13" MBPr.
 There's no proof given that Apple does not post those kinds of numbers but the K1 is 5-8W depending on device (5W for tablets) and most of the estimates are that the A8X are around 4.5W.  If it's less it's probably not much less.  The Core-M is a very impressive offering by Intel.   The primary downside is the cost in comparison to ARM and not performance per watt.
DED...our version of Dan Lyons.
My late 2014 Core i7 MBPr will run the fan sometimes for activity that doesn't strike me as too demanding.  Once in a blue moon this includes streaming to the external display but it's not normal and only notable because it's very rare.  I was writing code while a you tube video demonstration streamed on the external display.  It could be that something kicked off in background that hit some threshold.  It's never happens when just streaming a movie via HDMI but I don't...
 You aren't going to want to edit video on the thing or play games but otherwise the benchmarks seemed reasonable for most day to day activities.  Even software development if you don't have the need to run a lot of VMs.  The RAM limit is probably more of a hindrance than the processor.
 Lol...or just to ignore you.
Nope. My comment was always within the context of app developer usage to address his claim that the new MacBook is particularly poor for app development. The difference between the 13" MBA and 12" MB display is minimal and neither is particularly great for app development.Nope. Using the 13" MBP vs the 13" MBPr you can see that many folks run 1440x900 rather than 1280x800 and some will run 1680×1050. That's two modes that Apple provides and advertises as an advantage for...
lol. You want so much to be right that you pick the definition of screen space that favors you as opposed to what I meant in terms of productivity as a developer.Yes, physical screen space is bigger. Depending on how the user decides to scale the usable screen space smaller. Depending on you eyesight and scaling clarity the 12" is smaller, bigger or the same. The productivity difference is neglible which was my point.Again you want so badly to disagree with me that you...
And the size difference in terms of lines of code you can see in one display vs the other (at the same character size in inches to remain fair) is minimal. And if you have good eyes the higher resolution on the 12 allows you to see more.Compare with the development environment you have with a 27" display or what I use, the 29" ultra wide from dell and the difference is meaningless to productivity. Both the 12 and 13 are essentially single application displays. Having...
LOL, as if 13" gives you so much more screen space. And it's not like you're going to saturate the USB-C using two usbs for debugging and app loading.Frankly, as a developer, this is a complete non-issue. At my desk it now becomes one cable vs two to connect to the monitor that also serves as a usb3 hub.On the road, I have to have my cables and test devices that the addition of a dongle or hub is a not much of a change. Some but not much.
