No 1 is the better one, better CPU for multi tasking and the few dollars cost over the other too is worth it...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
