The i3 350 will be a better CPU compared to the Phenom II N620 (not by a significant margin though).. Your laptop selection should also consider the other components and pricing.. Which are the models you are looking at.?

Not sure I agree that the i3 is the better processor. Take a look at this:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Processors-Benchmar...

They have just about every cpu out there in the mobile market. You'll see the n620 is ranked 39th and the 350m is 49th. They factor in a lot more then the two scores you mentioned.

Also you might find another chip in that list that is attractive.

That's true. In 5 of 7 benchmarks i3-350 does better @ Notebookcheck.

i3-350 scores better in SuperPI 1M, 3DMark06 CPU, Dhrystone, Whetstone, Cinebench R10 Rendering Multi core.
N620 scores better in Cinebench R10 Rendering Single core and wPrime 32.

i3-350 vs N620 --> You can click on each benchmark individually and make it sort by best performance in that category.

And then there are the Passmark CPU scores too.
