The latter is obviously the cheaper one but i'm not sure if its completely worth it to spend more if the differences between the two are'nt that much.

✔ Best Answer
Looking at the specs, it's a no-brainer which is better. The 1st one with AMD A10, 8GB DDR4 RAM & 1TB HDD will outperform the 2nd one with AMD A6, 4GB DDR3 RAM & 500GB HDD. It would help to include the make/model/model number of each.

Also check the model number of the A10 APU. I can only guess it's an A10-9600P so have a look here for info about games:

For the first :MODEL#: X555DA-US11
For the second:MODEL#: 15-BA009DX
Also the first one is a AMD A10-8700P
Second is a AMD A6-7310

By the way i'm a huge fan of borderlands 2 so i wanted to ask if you could tell me how would it run on the A10 and at what settings? The lowest i'm content with is 30 fps.

I don't know where you got the specs from, but they're not entirely accurate. The A10-8700P is a 6th generation APU (2015) & does not support DDR4. And it's clock speed is actually 1.8GHz with a max Turbo Core speed of 3.2GHz. Here's a review:

If you can find a reasonable laptop with a distinct graphics 'card' and dedicated graphics memory then you will have a laptop more suitable for gaming (assuming that it is not really old or inferior in other ways).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
