11-inch Upgraded MacBook Air Offers 15% Performance Increase

AnandTech has tested the upgraded configuration of the 11-inch MacBook Air and found that it offers a 15% increase in performance.

Apple's 11.6 inch MacBook Air has a base configuration of 1.4GHz and 2GB of RAM. These specifications can be bumped to 1.6GHz and 4GB of RAM for an additional $200.

On average the upgraded system was 15% faster than the base 11-inch MacBook Air. The base 13-inch MBA averaged around 19% faster across the board, however in applications/usage models with large memory footprints the faster CPU had effectively no benefit.

The site was also able to measure a reduction of around 6% in battery life.
