With much higher max turbo speeds and another megabyte of L3 cache, it's clear this is going to be a big upgrade over the standard 11-inch Air.&nbsp; Last week we got our hands on one of these upgraded 11-inch models to find out just how much faster it is."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1312489389.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>The MacBook Air is a well designed notebook and faster speeds are always appreciated.&nbsp; What impresses me is that the 11" model gets a Core i7 model and how there could be a perceived need for someone using a notebook that small needing that much number-crunching mojo.&nbsp; Still, no real compromises seem to have been made, so the more powerful, the better!&nbsp; If you need a slick, high end cake slicer, the updated MacBook Air definitely seems like one of the top choices around.</p>
