It is better to have an OS that is made for the hardware and that is optimised for that device.

A New OS alone will not suddenly bring huge performance increases unless it is fixing some significant problem.

Mainly an OS will introduce new features, so for performance I would go for the better hardware which then opens up later OS upgrades if the hardware supports it.

I would go with a new OS. The reason is it's probably been more optimized and made to run faster and more efficiently. I found that Android 2.3 Gingerbread was much quicker than 2.1 Eclair on the same phone....

And what about 2.2?

How about a new OS with new components?

AKA Tegra2 bundled up with 2.3, or Honeycomb if it's a tablet.
