the newer haswel chip is indeed less powerful as shown by is 15 vs 35w power draw.
I would say that if their the same cost, that you should go with the older ivy bride cpu as even if you will be using integrated graphics the performance boost between intel HD4400 an 4000 inst enough to make it worth less cpu power
you can see here that the older chip will be about 20% faster

Also, I wont be using the laptop for gaming or photoshop + stuff like that. it will be mainly a second pc to use for web development. basically i just need to run several apps at once and nothing graphically intensive. I guess I am leaning toward the IB chip...

for some reason its cutting my link in half, feel confident that the I3-3110 is the better cpu, and ill try linking again, but if it doesnt work and your still curious just copy and paste the whole line into your browser.
