Re: Which is a better processor?
Intel chip for sure. Better performance and likely better battery life even at the same TDP. But neither of those chips are designed for heavy usage/speed. The Intel chip is the super low voltage series, using the new chipset and 32nm die. So it's got very good performance at low power but it's SPEED is low. Depends what you are doing with it, but out of those options, Intel for sure.
