MATLAB bench() on 11" MacBook Air Part II

It was reccomended that I run bench() five times to get a better picture of of the Air’s ability to run MATLAB. Apparently, there’s a bit of overhead involved in loading the bench code that is included in the score, but only for the first run.

You're welcome. I know how frustrating it can be trying to figure out if programs you need work on a computer before you buy it.

Hey Jay, thanks for putting this up. I'm thinking of getting one of these for my daughter who is going to Georgia Tech in the fall. The question I have is regarding the screen size. Is it big enough and is the resolution high enough to get stuff done easily or do you find yourself wishing you had more real estate to work with?

Thanks man,
