Dell Inspiron 3521 i3-3227U vs Turbo-X HU II i523-432

I 'd like to buy a new notebook but can't decide between these two low class: Dell Inspiron 3521 i3-3227U and Turbo-X HU II i523-432.
They have both a 15.6' LCD screen and cost about the same (just a 30$ difference).
Just to mention, Turbo-x is a brandname launched by a
greek electronics store which assembles laptop parts.
Now, their specifications have the following differences:
Dell Inspiron: Intel Core i3 3227U Processor (3M Cache up to 1.90 GHz)
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Turbo-X: Intel Core i5 2430M (2.4 GHz)
Intel HD Graphics 3000
They have the same RAM memory (4 GB DDR3) and come with Windows 8 64-bit. The rest of their specs are just as much the same.
So, the main question is which processor is better ( given that Core i3 3x is newer than Core i5 2x) , since Intel HD Graphics 4000 is probably a better graphics card than Intel HD Graphics 3000.
Apart from that, I am highly concerned about the doubted quality of the case and plastic parts of Turbo-x , compared to Dell's reliability.
I would appreciate your opinions on these!
If anyone has any experience with Dell Inspiron 3521 please let me know.
