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

or

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 - Notebookcheck.com Technik/FAQ
R7 M260: AMD Radeon R7 M260 - NotebookCheck.net Tech

Seem to be fairly similar in game performance according to the framerates listed for the games at the bottom.
