These are gonna be used for games such as LOL, Rs, youtube and maybe streaming.
Questions:
1) will they be able to stream lol in the highest setting.
2)nvidia 940m 1366 X 786 i 5 vs Intel hd graphics 520 1920 X 1080 i7 which one ?
3) does having hdd (instead ssd) matter for my uses?
4) any better suggestions?

Go for the one with 940M as it has dedicated GPU it will perform a lot better than the integrated Intel HD graphics laptop. And with that low resolution you will get better gaming performance in comparison to 1080p.

For gaming the UB might be a little better with the 940 GPU and some dedicated DRAM, the other has a slightly better CPU, but for Gaming go with the better GPU which won't be taking up as much system DRAM
