Why the 3.1 is more expensive than the 2.7 if Intel price is lower for the 3.1 ($184.00) vs 2.7($216.00)? And why the 3.1GHz seems to be faster if the max clock is lower? Max Turbo Frequency 3.1 = 3.4 GHz vs 2.7 = 3.7 GHz and why the 3.1GHz have the same TDP (95W) as the i7 3.4GHz (95W) versus the "only" 65W in the 2.7GHz? I don't like these things… the 3.1GHz to me looks not (a lot of) better than the 2.7GHz. CHeck the comparison table by Intel: http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=52213,52207,52211,, Thanks.
