Well, they have the same geometry, and nearly the same exact build kit (different rims on the Dawes) so there isn't a ton of difference. I'd bet even the differently logoed bits on each bike are the same damn parts, just with differing logos and cosmetics.
May as well get the cheaper one. IMO, they are both going to ride the same - probably like a brick. They are cheap frames, built up with cheap parts. Buy it, ride it, enjoy it.
That said, get the most bike your budget will allow.
