- MacBook Air Core i5 1.4 11″ (early 2014) has no improvements at all save for the faster Haswell CPU with ultra-low TDP. The thermal design power (TDP) or thermal design point, is the maximum amount of heat a CPU or GPU generates. The maximum in its turn is determined by the cooling system power. In a nutshell, this feature means, that the processor is harder to overheat under normal performance and easier to cool by system fans.
- Intel Core i5 (4260U) processor belongs to Haswell family and supports hyperthreading. Thus, the end-user got two physical cores and two virtual ones.
