    I am trying to find some benchmarks on the "AMD Phenom II X4 P940 1.7GHz" to compare it to the " Intel Core i7-740QM 1.73GHz"

    The average price difference between these 2 is of $200 -"Ceteris Paribus"

    I've read that the i7 740QM can be overclocked to 2.9 .... I haven't heard (or read) anything like that about the Phenom.

    They are both QuadCores and I was wondering if the performance of one CPU clearly sets itself apart from the other?

    A 2.9 OC on the i7 mobile sounds a bit generous, even if possible dont bank of achieving it without serious nodding and shortened battery life.
