Anyone care to compare the performance of this 2008 Air versus this specific new one?
Btw the old Air is running this hard disk:
- - -
Obviously one of the main reasons I am asking is the reduction in clock speed 5 years on. I'm not too well up on Intel's processors. As much real world useful information as possible would be great. How much faster will the new machine be/feel; how much cooler will it run? The more basic the feedback the better.
The comparison feedback should be for the models listed above.
Also: if I am to buy a new Air, should I opt for 256GB HD, 8GB RAM, 1.7Ghz? And why, specifically? Which of these 3 additions is the most important if I could just pick one? If I could only pick 2, which should I leave out?
Would I be better off choosing the most basic new 13" model (11 is too small, I've used it) and then upgrading to the Thunderbolt 2 Retina model next year? Many questions. Feedback on all of this would be greatly appreciated.
