The new Air is faster than its predecessor- and the MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Air has been benchmarked. MacWorld reports that processor performance has increased over the last generation of Air, despite a lower clocked processor speed. The 13" 1.86 GHz Air has twice the Speedmark 6.5 score, 108 over the 2009 model's 54. The Air's flash drive can duplicate a 1 GB file 13 seconds, compared to 69 seconds for the HDD model.
The new nVidiaGeForce 320M delivers three times the FPS of the 09's integrated graphics card. There is also a difference in performance between the 11" model and the 13" model. The larger Air is 27% faster and can handle displaying more FPS. The Air also outperforms the faster-on-paperPro by 2 points in the Speedmark test.
Battery life was also tried. Looping a full-screen, full brightness movie the 11" air lasted 3 hours and 40 minutes. The 13" lasted 4 hours and 25 minutes. The last-gen Air, by comparison, got 3 hours and 5 minutes.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
