Re: Which one should I go for, worth the £70 difference?
Just from looking at the specs, I would go for the slightly more expensive one - the slightly better GPU and HDMI output will make it more resellable in the future, and make anything multimedia based easier at the minute.
Before buying either though, I would look at reviews for the both - professional ones, not the Reviews section on eBuyer - by googling '[make+model of laptop] review'. This will warn you if there's anything up with either laptop, or if there are any particularly good points about them.
