    What do you wish to use the laptop for - general browsing, emails, document work and the occasional gaming OR are you looking mainly for a gaming laptop

    I would suggest the HP-Pro. I am not quite sure about the second computer if it has a typo which says has 4 MB of memory which is extremely too low. Also has W10 Home. The first one has W10 Pro. Both have the same price. I would go for the first choice but the final decision is on you.

    Since it is a refurbished and from ebay it is kind of hard to know if the computer is good or bad and it has no warranty for returns. Contact seller before buying.
    It is up to you to make a decision.

    Ouch... refurb laptops in Amazon are really pricey...

    I remembered the last time I bought an EliteBook 2570p (from a private refurbisher in eBay of course) and I ended up spending £110, comes with i5-3320M, a single 4GB DDR3 RAM, 320GB 7200rpm HDD, a fairly healthy battery (2-3 hours) and a 65W power brick... Then I spent even more than the cost of the lappy on the upgrades but that's not the main subject.

    Anyway, Amazon's refurb laptops are just overpriced IMO. If you're a bit confident to further upgrade your lappy then look for private sellers in eBay instead, and even if it ends up DOA you can open a case, which eBay mostly side with the buyers as long as you have enough proof.

    P.S. Just in case you don't know, 2570p is a generation later than 2560p in one of the links, so for only £110 it's a steal.
