Best Laptop

My friend is buying a laptop this summer and he plans to do gaming on it, using a desktop for gaming is not an option for him at all.  But the trouble is he has a small budget of ~$350.  He doesn't plan to do heavy gaming only light gaming such as Garry's Mod, Counter-Strike:GO, Minecraft, TF2, and maybe Skyrim if he can.

These are the two options I recommended for him.

Which one would be best for his price range?

I would go for the Asus. The graphics on the APU would be a lot better then Intel HD graphics and Asus is awsome.
