Core i7 Intel Graphics 4400 or AMD A8-Series AMD Radeon

I am considering buying a new laptop (both are HP) and was hoping to get an answer to which processor would better suit me..I don't game a whole ton, so no worries in that. I'm looking for the best bang for the buck and the one that will last the most. They both are roughly the same price out the door with tax.

Core i7 Intel® HD Graphics 4400 or AMD A8-Series AMD Radeon HD 8210 which is going to be better in the long run.

Thank you all,
Matt

AMD A8 is an APU and the Radeon Graphics is built into the A8 chip and not an add-on board.
Don't know which is better but my new laptop has an AMD A10 and I am pleased with it.
