Both look like they would work fine, I would opt for the 2nd one - Cheaper and you can use the left over cash for any upgrades.
ie a Fast SSD (intel better but over priced right know, Patriot Torqx or OCZ vortex 128 gig is lower cost per gigs - (DO NOT get vortex M28 version SAMSUNG Controler). I bought the 128 gig Torqx for Approx $320. If it has 2nd HDD bay, then use SSD for Operating system plus programs and Mechanical HDD for your files. Mine did not have 2nd bay so I conned the HDD via esata port when needed.
SATA internal Blu-ray ROM/DVD writer - Stateside approx $200 Way overpriced as Pata verion is only $100. Ordered mine from Taiwan for $100 free shipping and they sent via airmail, had within two weeks. Need to look at how hard it is to replace ODD - Mine was simple.
If your on the road much and with out AC - might want a 9 cell Battery, not cheap, as battery life is going to be short. This is true for any high end laptop with 6 cell battery.
