Laptop Performance Comparison

I'm looking to purchase a laptop for multiple reasons, one being gaming. My current desktop is absolute trash and I'm merely wondering which option would provide me with the best performance.

My first option offers:

6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-6200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz)
8GB Dual Channel DDR3L 1600MHz (4GBx2)
1TB 5400 rpm SATA Hard Drive
AMD Radeon™ R5 M335 2GB DDR3

The second offers:

Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 4510U (2.0GHz, 4MB L3 Cache)
1TB 5400RPM Hard Disk Drive
2GB AMD Radeon™ R5 M330 Graphics

Pretty much, I'm wondering which would be best and what sort of fps results I could achieve on newer games, such as Star Citizens or Fallout 4 (If any results). Thanks.
