After playing with them both, I like the feel of the Sony more, but I'm not sure. 4th gen i5 is superior to 3rd gen i7, right?

The Samsung with the i7 is much better. A low-power dual-core isn't going to touch a Hyperthreaded Quad-core.

i7-3635QM - Passmark Score: 6658

Plus the Samsung has a dedicated graphics card.
