MacBook Air Benchmarks Compared Against 13-inch MacBook Pro

Primate Labs has released Geekbench benchmarks for the 11-inch and 13-inch MacBook Airs.

I've grabbed Geekbench 2 scores from the Geekbench Result Browser for all of the MacBook Air models, as well as the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro models (it being the most logical comparison outside of the Air lineup). I've also included scores for the iPad and the latest 13-inch MacBook Pro models (as they're the products most folks will be comparing the new Airs against).

They conclude that the 11-inch MacBook Air "is small enough that I'd consider bringing it instead of an iPad, but I'd worry it's not fast enough (or have enough screen space) to be my primary laptop." The 13-inch MacBook Air however has "80% of the processor performance of the latest 13-inch Pro, making it an acceptable substitute for users looking for a slightly more portable Pro."
