1. The additional vram doesn't mean it's better, at least not by much as they are the same GPU.It's like comparing the RX 580 4gb vs the 8gb, they perform identically however the larger vram may allow for gaming at a higher resolution or slightly higher graphic settings but not worth sacrificing CPU power imho.

The first one has the better CPU and would be my choice between the two however is there a way to get a laptop with the 9300H? It's better then both of those and can usually be found in some budget gaming laptops. Even the 8300H is a bit better then the 3550H.

If you live near a Microcenter you can usually find a good price on them.

1. But the First one had 3GB Graphics Card and the second one had 4GB so its still better??
Will it not be affecting performance in games and workloads??

2.Having 3GB or 4GB Graphics Card is there any difference between them other than Dedicated graphic memory capacity?
How will it affect?
