As a programmer, what counts for me is (a) the screen area, (b) I/O speed for compilation, and (c) memory for tools, debuggers, multiple IDE sessions. Once you go over a certain threshold (which both processors pass), CPU speed is less important.

All other things being equal, a 16:10 scenn has slightly more screen area than a 16:9 screen. The Intel CPU can execute AVX-512 instructions, which is useful if I am writing high-performance code. Otherwise, I see little to choose between the systems; they both appear to be good development platforms.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
