Which MacBook Air Processor?
I'm looking at buying the 13-inch MacBook Air and there are options for two processors:
1.8GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz
2.0GHz Intel Dual-Core Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHz [Add $90.00]
I assume the more expensive one is better but does anyone know how much faster it actually is? Would I notice the difference for writing, using the Internet, and occasional watching movies on Netflix or Hulu?

I think that if you are only using it for "writing, using the Internet, and occasional watching movies on Netflix or Hulu" than you will not need the Intel Dual-Core Core i7 processor. You will only need the extra speed for high end gaming or extremely high speed needing programs like an architecture design program.
