Thanks. I was leaning the same way, but as far as value goes I wasn't sure if it's worth a $90 difference for what looks like an even match depending on what you value: cpu vs gpu.

I value your opinion, but I think your missing what I'm saying. I'm looking for the cheapest, low budget laptop that can play new(er) games. No need for eye candy or high resolutions. Judging off youtube videos and reviews both laptops should be fine for playing games at 1280x720. Hell some guys are recording with fraps while playing.
