The B+RGLED is a better choice of screens,i recieved a XPS 17 L702X as a system replacement with the AG screen,it was like looking on a painting canvas.Like the old Matte screens.The biggest difference between the 2 systems,Dell is trying to go to the slim (Z series XPS) line laptops.My system has the i7-2620(which is a quad core) and performs very well.It's a matter of choice,do you want the slim line system(15Z) or the standard 15.15Z comes with nVidia GT 525M,which dell lists as 1GB and 2GB(don't understand that) XPS 15 comes with nVidia GT 550M if i remember correctly.

Will I see much of a performance difference between the two processors?

In terms of real time gains,no,not really.we are talking about a .10 increase in CPU that is not even worth the price difference in the two.
