I was reading about processors, but I’m a bit confused. I read that Core M processors are less powerful than full Core i processors because they are designed for mobile devices while the full Core i’s were designed for laptops and desktops, so I initially took that as the Air's Core i5 being more powerful than the MacBook's Core M.
However, the 2017 MacBook Air’s Core i5 is from the Broadwell generation while the 2017 MacBook’s Core M3 is from Kabby Lake.
From what I understand, Kabby Lake chips are supposed to be faster and more efficient than those from older microarchitectures, so I guess that should make the MacBook better than the Air? Then again, Core M processors are designed for mobile or ultra-thin devices which typically have less processing power, I think?
I wonder which one is actually better, especially when multitasking or using more resource-demanding programs? Will there be a significant difference between the two?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
