Personally I'd go with the first one because of the pricing difference but there are other members on here who know more about CPU speeds than I.

just from what you've listed, i'd say the first one.

they both have the same gfx card, same size hdd, same amount of ram but the first one is almost 200CAD cheaper and it has a more powerful cpu.
