Here’s a nice little article about the difference between the two. Or rather should I say the difference becuase there is only one really. Actually if you review the specs there are a couple of minor changes between them but ultimately the two are the same hardware save for the processor.
According to this article the Intel chip performs twice as well as the Arm chip on benchmarks but I bet it costs about £100 more if/when it gets released in the UK.
The big question, is the Pro worth the extra money? The Intel Core m3 should provide a performace boost but if the Arm chip runs Android apps without much fuss then I don’t really care. It’s not like I’ll be using this for serious work.
Reviews are suggesting that the ARM based plus is OK but you’ll need the pro if you want more power. The ARM chip does give better battery life compared to the Pro so there’s that to consider if you are mobile and away from power sockets for a long time.
