Default Need advice between 2 laptops

Hi guys, new to this forum, was stuck with this issue and someone recommended asking you all

I need help and opinions... getting my wife a laptop for her bday, under 400 but will be used mainly for gaming (mostly World of Warcraft). Have narrowed down to these 2 but am 50/50...

Buy HP Pavilion 15-p157sa 15.6" Laptop - Purple | Free Delivery | Currys


I would say I'm good with computer specs etc but one of them has Intel Iris graphics that I had never heard of and cant find that much about and thats whats really throwing off my decision!

Which one would you guys recommend.

Thanks alot in advance!

Iris: Intel Iris Graphics 5100 - Technik/FAQ
R7 M260: AMD Radeon R7 M260 - Tech

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
