Should I buy an early 2011 macbook pro or a late 2010 upgraded one?

I have two used macbook pro offers from which I can choose from, and I would like your input on which I should pick.
The first is a 13 inch Macbook Pro from early 2011, I5 2,3 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, 320 GBs (5400 RPM), the basic stock model.
The second is a late 2010, also 13 inch Macbook Pro, with the 2,4 GHz dual core processor, but upgraded with 8GB RAM and a 640 GB (7200 RPM) hard drive. This one also has an Optibay installed.
I guess the question really is do the upgrades on the slightly older macbook make for a bigger upgrade than the processor upgrade on the newer model? I can find websites with comparisons but not ones for custom macs.
If it matters, I will be using the computer for video and sound editing, as well as ordinary day to day use.
Thank you very much for your help!
