The difference is the first one is $50 less with a slower processor (2.40 GHz vs. 2.26 GHz) but has a larger HDD (500 GB vs. 320 GB)

Here is an analysis of the GPU:

Here is a thread about the notebook:

J & R has this notebook for $750 but it just went out of stock recently and they removed the page about the notebook completely.

If this is not for you, you can pick up a refurb Asus with a stronger GPU for about $700.

Example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There are a few different models similar to this one floating around the web.
The details on the GPU can also be found on notebookcheck.net

The major physical differences between these two is the latter is thicker with probably a larger power brick and will most likely run hotter because of the GPU.

Hardware-wise the differences are straightforward.
