I would go with the 1st laptop.

Intel CPUs consumes less power than AMD's APUs so all thing being equal, the laptop with the Intel CPU will have longer battery life. Even if all 4 cores in the FX-8800p are used it would still be less powerful than the i5-6200u in most circumstances. Lastly, while I have not seen any benchmarks for the Radeon R8 M350DX (which use integrated graphics and a R7 dedicated CPU of a model I do not know), the higher end Radeon R8 M365DX is rated as less powerful than a nVidia 830m. That means the Radeon R8 M350DX would be even less powerful.

Below is a link to some game benchmarks for a few low end graphic solutions. The least powerful I included in the restricted list is the Intel HD 520 (rank 297), while the most powerful is the nVidia 940m (152).

Whether the purpose of the laptop is to play games or do work the Asus K401UB-FR038T would be the best laptop.

If you are just doing casual gaming, you will be fine with the first one. I would upgrade the RAM in it though if you multitask a lot as you might find 4gb a little limiting.
