Pre-purchase opinions/advice request

260-a10 /260-a20
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Not sure if this is the correct place to ask for pre-purchase comparison help, but here goes:  

 

I'm looking to buy an inexpensive desktop PC for my wife to just use for web surfing and storing her photos.  (She has a more powerful laptop for her work and an iPad for travel and casual use.)  I'm looking at the HP Slimline 260-a10 and 260-a20 and comparing the two.

 

The a10 has an Intel Pentium J3710 processor with a CPU speed of 1.6 GHz; comes with 4 GB ram; integrated Intel HD graphics and a 1 TB hard drive.  Ships with Windows 10 Home (64-bit) according to the box label and HP website.

 

The a20 has an AMD Carrizo-L A6-7310 processor with a CPU speed of 2.0 GHz; comes with 6 GB ram; integrated AMD Radeon R4 graphics and the same 1 TB hard drive.  Ships with Windows 10 Home (64-bit) according to th HP website, but NOT according to the box label.

 

Bottom line, assuming all else is identical--which it probably is regardless of labeling--which is most likely the better performing and dependable PC--the AMD/6 GB RAM a20; or the Intel/4 GB RAM a10.

 

Finally, they are both the same price, but at two different stores.  I'd appreciate any help/welcome your opinions.

Both processors are "quad-core" (4 cores, 4 threads).

 

So, all else being equal, except for more RAM in the 'a20', I would choose the faster computer -- the 'a20'.
