Quite honestly it depends on what you want to do with the laptop. The graphics cards are about evenly matched for both laptops. On the first one you're looking at an AMD Quad-Core that has low clock speed compared to the Intel Duo-core, especially if you consider processor architecture. So unless you plan on running some multi-threaded programs such as video editing software, you'd be better off with the second laptop.

Keep in mind that the DV6 series laptop screens are not very well protected against breakage (no stiffening in the lid, so a bit of flexion can cause a crack); if you can afford it, buy the optional breakage insurance.
