Default expert help need in deciding between 2 laptops

Trying to decide between two HP Pavilion laptops,

a) DV6245us ($1099.99 at retail store Office Depot)
- 1.60 GHz Intel Centrino Duo ft. Core 2 Duo T5200
- 2 mb L2 Cache
- 1024 mb DDR2 ram
- up to 256 mb (Shared) Video memory
- 160 gb HD
- Windows Vista Home Premium

b) DV6247cl ($999.99 at retail store BJ's)
- 1.73 GHz Intel Centrino Duo ft. Core Duo T2250
- 2 mb L2 Cache
- 2048 mb DDR2 ram
- up to 256 mb (Shared) Video memory
- 120 gb HD
- Windows Vista Home Premium

trying to get the most out of my money, so I need to know whether the performance differences between the two are slim or big. Also, when it says up to 256 mb for video memory, how much memory does it actually have. I will be using this mostly for internet, adobe photoshop, music, microsoft word, excel, access.
