Just suppose a body wanted to buy one of the new MacBook Airs announced today, and that body had to choose between upgrading the chip or the memory, which would benefit Tinderbox more…
IOTW (and I appreciate this can have only have a general answer and not be specific to the MBA) in principle, is relative processing power more important than relative memory size for Tinderbox? (BTW, you can’t upgrade the graphics chip at all.)
FWIW, the base machine comes with:
- 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core i3, Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz, with 4MB L3 cache
- 8 GB memory
The first level upgrade in either case is to:
- 1.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz, with 6MB L3 cache
- 16GB memory.
Any thoughts? Does anyone use a previous model MacBook Air for TBX for comparison?
