The AMD A8-5550m is an APU. That's a combination of a CPU and a GPU.
The Intel Core i5 3210M also has an integrated graphics processor (IGP) but it's listed as a CPU.

Anyway, the Intel Core i5 will outperform the AMD in almost everything.
Choose the AMD only if you're using the laptop solely for gaming.
And even then it can't handle more than casual games.
