The Macbook Air – the worlds thinnest notebook computer

Initially, I thought it was a fully-fledged Montevina, but then I delved a bit deeper into the specifications and it seems that Apple is using a standard 65nm Core 2 Duo chip – not one of the new 45nm Penryn chips that Intel announced at CES.
The key here is the L2 cache size – all of Intel’s 45nm Core 2 Duo chips have either 6MB or 3MB shared L2 caches, while both of the processors that can be specced for the Macbook Air have 4MB of shared L2.
