As Kjell pointed out the N4200 has a lower base frequency which means it consumes less energy which means longer battery time with notebooks. The N3700 has a max clock speed of 2.4 Ghz and the N4200 is 2.5 GHz. All the benchmarks are higher with the N4200. I have notebooks with both of these and the one with the N4200 clearly performs better. The notebooks I have are ASUS VivoBook E403SA-US21 (with N3700) and ASUS VivoBook E403NA-US21 (with N4200). My experience with both is that the VivoBook E403NA-US21 performs better than the .1 GHz difference in max clock speed would indicate. There is a noticeable difference (including with gaming). Battery time is also longer with VivoBook E403NA-US21.
It might be cheaper. It still sucks however.
The N3700 has more than a 45% higher clock speed than the N4200, 2x higher GPU clock speed and it has around 2.2x better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Where do you see the lower performance for N4200?
Though older N3700 appears to be a better product. Why go backwards in speed? This is a downgrade!
