I'm trying to find a laptop for school (prob use it for streaming services also like Hulu) and I narrowed it down to two.

 

https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-Vivobook-Portable-NanoEdge-Processor/dp/B07MKLLT6J/ref=sr_1_22?crid=3FDQYJWDOQUCZ&keywords=vivobook&qid=1579206646&s=electronics&sprefix=Vivobook%2Celectronics%2C169&sr=1-22

or 

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RF2123Z/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20&th=1 (Is there any other color?)

 

The ASUS one is almost a $100 difference,and both have similar parts, am I missing something that is making it almost $100 more (that isn't the color)? 

Budget $400-$600

Any specific requirements? (eg display size, weight, battery life, number of USB ports, high sRGB display etc)

Uhh not over 15ish” on display (so max is like 15.6”?), that’s all I can think of. No chromebooks or thinkpads as I’m kinda looking for a nice looking design too.
