Processor Specs for MB Pro and MB Air

I'm confused about processing specs on newer/older Macbook Airs and Macbook Pros.
The current MacBook Air 13 is 1.4GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz
But Apple's also selling a refurb MBA-13 from June 2012 that's 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 (no "turbo boost" mentioned). Is it possible that the two year out of date computer's way faster/more powerful?
Also, I'm replacing a 2009 macbook pro that's 2.53ghz (Intel Core 2 Duo). Would these two Airs be less powerful because they're way under 2.53ghz? I was kind of hoping for a speed bump upon upgrading after five years....
