What manufacturers are these? Give us links if possible.

Over 4GB RAM is overkill, won't help the performance in games.
The first one has better graphics.
AMD CPU, I'm not sure about.
Any of those will not lag out.

the i3 is a bit faster, but the 4250 sucks and is blown out of the water by the 5470. I'd go with the first one, while over 4gb is relatively overkill it doesn't hurt and with a faster GPU I'd go with that one.

and they're both HP laptops.
