Default Debating between two laptops: one w/ better CPU, one w/ better GPU

So Laptop 1 has an Intel Core i3-3110M, 4GB RAM, and a GeForce GT 640M LE 2GB GPU

Laptop 2 has a quad core A8-A4500M, 8GB RAM, and a Radeon HD 8750M 2GB GPU

They are both **** but a friend in Eastern Europe is purchasing them so it's probably all they have available.

Which would you choose assuming they are the same price?

It depends on exactly what he is going to be using the laptop for. Also post links as if one of the laptops has a lower native resolution the GPU won't need to be quite as good.
