I'm trying to trade my laptop on our pawnshop because the one I bought has a bad display, dark and foggy. I'm bad with computers spec and I'm not sure which is the best. I search their model number and this is the laptops they are  selling:
Hewlett Packard 13-4101dx they selling for $549 - https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04746336
This is my current laptop I bought from them last week for $540: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/8563012
 
Which laptop should I get? I need one for daily use and little gaming. Also, I can't return my laptop for cash I can only trade it for another device.

Why would you go back for more shoddy goods ?....

 

Personally I would cut my losses and go buy something new. Save up if you have to.

The OP almost certainly should have picked up on the display issue before even leaving the pawnshop.

 

The fact that they're even allowing an exchange indicates to me that they don't want to be known for selling shoddy goods, and a great many do not.  Since it sounds like the OP loses everything if they don't do an exchange it seems to me that an exchange makes sense if sufficient care is taken in evaluating the machine before it leaves the premises.

 

The HP 15-g035wm I have (now as my secondary machine) came from eBay from a pawnshop and is still running like a champ.  Caveat emptor.

I'd say the Dell is better by a hair.  They are pretty evenly matched machines.

I worked for the French Oil Company Total and BP and their Tech section would buy nothing but Dell. I have a Dell Inspiron 6430 and can't fault it. I have had HP's that failed BSOD etc

Neither of these are that great to be honest. Maybe you can save up a little more are choose something with much much better specs than these. I see that you are not going to use it extensively or so, but I would still say reliability will be an issue with these laptops.

A friend of mine had the Dell Inspiron and he kept complaining about the build quality. Now I am not exactly sure what he meant by that.

Depends on your budget, usually the more you spend the better it is, for the most part. Also size has a large input. Personally I'd go for 15"+ but if you're carrying it around, it's more bulk and weight.
