AMD uses on-board graphics and will struggle if you do any gaming, plus some of your 2GB will be used for video memory. Intel is worth the extra £20 though you'll not notice any speed difference between the two in day-to-day use.

You probably won't notice any difference; choosing between AMD & Intel is very subjective, personally I prefer Intel, the chip runs slightly cooler, but having said that AMD make some good chips & I have used them in the past without problems.
The choice is yours!!
