The A7 has about 50% the computing power of the Macbook air core I5. The Arm processors are are great mobile chips (phone/tablet) because they don't consume much power. If you're willing to pack around a one pound battery then the ARM looses that advantage. Of course if you want a Macbook air that can go a week without recharging then I suppose an ARM chip might be appropriate but you will have to give on performance.
