I understand these "can't be used for gaming" but I'm only interested in these two so any help would be great.

1. AMD A8-6410 Quad-Core APU
Graphics: R5 230M
4GB RAM cannot add anymore RAM

2. AMD A8-4500M Quad Core APU
Graphics: AMD 7640g discrete, up to 2158mb memory
8gb RAM

Thank you, sorry for asking so much.

with APU laptop you need dual channel RAM as it will increase video bandwidth. My laptop has a A10-5750M and my IGP (integrated graphic processor) get double bandwidth with dual channel.

I would recommend the first one as it has a discrete GPU. So you don't really have to worry much about getting dual channel memory.

Second option does not have discrete GPU but integrated (xxxxG graphics are integrated. my 5750M has 8650G integrated which perform similary to a R5 230M)

The first one is nonexpandable at 4gb of RAM, would that be a problem?

Ohh I see. It says R5 230M is integrated, is it still better than the 7640g?
