Refer to options above, they have (except Ideapad 730s)

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

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.
