Given the choice of identical specs which would the experts recommend for teenagers?

If "identical specs" then, either! :o)

It depends on what you mean by specs?
If you are saying they are both P4 XXXmhz and 256mb ram etc then that isnt enough to go on. One could have a cheap and nasty problem motherboard for example.
Too many machines like this are being sold for my liking and users wonder why they get lots of problems.

I would build them a cheap comp. Not buy with a board like this not ungradable but at that price who cares it's a 1Gb cpu modem graphics and sound nearly built click here

buy one from a respectable manufacturer, which has been known for sturdy platforms with good support.

Being a teenager, i have a work laptop and a gaming computer, i'd buy an average comp, then double the ram and put on a beastly graphics. Don't game too much mind!
