The Core i5-5200u is more powerful than the A8-7100. However, for average daily usage you will probably not be able to tell the difference since you will not be stressing the APU / CPU very much. But Intel CPUs generally consume less power than AMD APUs so they can generally get better battery life.

For games the Radeon R7 M265 is more powerful than the nVidia 820m so you will generally get better performance with the R7 M265 even though the A8-7100 has less processing power than the i5-5200u.

They are pretty close, though the i5 has about 50% better single core performance. The m265 is about 25% better performing than the 820m. I would say if you favor energy efficiency, web browsing, video, DX9 games, and MMO's go with the i5/820m. If storage capacity or 2011-2014 games are more your needs then go with the A8/m265 unit. Neither will play modern games at high settings, but should be capable of low to medium settings at low resolutions. Also, the i5 unit could benefit from another 4GB of RAM.

It will depend on how much gaming you do. The r7 is stronger than the 820m which will make a difference in games. Also the ram will make a difference. This should allow more multi tasking.

But for normal use go with the intel as they don't overheat as much and consume less power.

If you are located in the US, you may want to look into Newegg, they have an Acer for about $500 that has the same i5 with a better 940m GPU. It's a pretty good deal, and I'm assuming falls within the same price range you are looking at.
