Good ol' raw performance in absolute numbers.

Watts per mips he will lose, i think. But perhaps (i didn't look at comparison for this specific processor) the phone/tablet manufacturers are staring to believe that the processing power gain offset the higher power drain.

Don't loose the sight that "mobile" devices should remain "mobile", thus shouldn't drain the battery unexpectedly. For a web browser, an office application or some light games (Dead Space) an ARM it enough.

For serious business and serious power though, your Core i7 based laptop should make it. Don't think you'll do everything on the tablet.
