Well, that second machine has some sort of "auto frothing"? It adds it to the cup??
Really, this gets absurd. Stick to the basics. Ironically, coffee snobs are more into basic machines.
French press or quality pour over doesn't get much simpler for drip. If auto drip go Bonavita drip or Technivorm.
Even basic espresso machines are fraught with issues. Basic doesn't necessarily mean cheap. Water at around 200F under pressure applied into a porta filter (the handle thing where the espresso goes). Sounds easy but it proves not so much.
Layering on electronic doo dads, built in grinders, auto adding frothers, is just asking for trouble. Plus you learn little about espresso and coffee. That's why I'd recommend a pod device to get into it, with a steamer. At least you get satisfaction from being able to steam milk and the quality of the foam you make.
Even this one for me gets a little over basic, but at least it has a steamer.
What we generally look for is heavier duty parts in the heating and pressure circuit and steam boiler.
Does it have a separate boiler for steam? - a good thing. Worth more than electronics telling you the day of the week.
