Need help deciding setup

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and need help, I have two laptops which I am hoping I can run Cubase 5 on at least one of them if possible, if so which would be the better one to use. I play sax and sing plus play keyboards which I want to be able to use mainly as a home studio.

Any help would be most appreciated regards what else could improve possibility, I have a Tascam external sound-card but would prefer not to have to use.

The two laptop spec’s are
