I'm looking for a new laptop that will be able to play games like Borderlands 2. I don't mind too much playing on medium or low settings as long as the game is playable. Other than that, it would only be used for web browsing, Microsoft Office, and mild video editing I'm on a pretty tight budget, $550 or less. I'm not an expert, but I think I found two computers that may fit the bill.

$530 Acer Aspire
AMD A8-4500M
AMD Radeon HD 7670M
4GB RAM

$510 Lenovo IdeaPad
Intel Core i5-3210M
Intel HD Graphics 4000
4GB RAM

Please advise on which would be better for my purposes. If you know of a better laptop for a similar price, that would be great.

If you're going to be gaming, then the Acer would be better. AMD's APU graphics will be much better than the Intel HD 4000.

Yeah, you want the Acer for games.

The Intel CPU significantly more powerful than AMD APU in terms of processing power, but the Radeon HD is a significantly more powerful graphics card than the Intel HD 4000. Therefore, games will perform better on the Acer.
