    dell is allways the best laptop company, but the first one seems better in performances.
    To be reasonable, all the laptop companies are good at these days, at the end of the ends, You get a warrant with every laptop, so go for the first one.

    P.S Intel CPUs are allways better for programming, and IM.
    AMD CPU and Radeon graphics are besst for games and power savings.

    I come from a land downunder
    I make my puter buying decisions on the warranty - ask them where it gets fixed if it breaks down. Where I'm at some companies have local sercice centres and some make you send it to a distant city for repair.

    the difference between the 2 could mean losing your puter for 2 days or 10 days

    Go with Dell. Good for long tasks and the brand is in top if we talk performance-wise.

    Laptop will not be for gaming.
