Cello - Problems choosing!?

Hi there! So, I have a problem :D

I'm going to start playing the cello but I'm having problems choosing which one to buy! So, I wanted to know your professional thoughts about them. These are from a store, but I'm buying them via internet.

1. Cello Size: Full Size 4/4 - Hofner

Cello Specification:
-Solid carved spruce top
-Solid maple back and sides
-Golden-brown finish
-Ebony fittings
-Maple Bridge
-Finetuner Tailpiece
-Polished Steel strings

Includes:
-Round Brazilwood bow with Rosewood frog
-Hard foam Thermo-formed-case with canvas cover and internal accessory pockets

2. Size 4/4 - Carlo Giordano

-Solid spruce top
-Slightly flamed maple neck / back & sides
-Ebony pegs & fingerboard
-4 adjuster metal tailpiece
-Accessories: Carrying bag, Bow & Rosin

The cost isn't importante, I just want to know which one is better, because I don't know which one is :D

So, help me, please??? :D

To be perfectly honest with you, you can tell very little about the quality or sound of the cello just judging by the information they give you online and the picture.

I think that the best thing a musician can do for themselves is go to an actual store and try out every single cello in your price range. Every single cello will differ in sound and feel. Some players might prefer something more sweet, bright. While others prefer mellow, or dark, or clear. But you simply can't tell what kind of instrument it is if you buy it online.

The same also applies to the bow. It might seem like such a small tool but different bows can also add to the sound that you produce. Each bow is different in weight.
For example, my bow is on the lighter end of the weight spectrum and combined with my instrument, it produces a mellow sound compared to a heavier bow which gives it more voice.

I hope you understand where Im coming from. I just wish for you to make a good decision since buying it online cannot guarantee that you'll like it and returning it would be a problem.

But....if you must choose from the two above.... my comments are:
-the Hofner bow sounds nice since most student bows aren't made from wood

-Other than that, all the other info they give you (like the spruce top, maple, ebony pegs/fingerboard, tailpiece, etc.) aren't significant at all because it is basically the same for all cellos.

-when choosing online, i might choose the one that's more expensive. Price is never a good standard to judge something from, but in this case, it might have to do.

The best of luck!

EDIT: In response to what Archer has said;
It is true that old instruments tend to produce a better sound than new ones due to its wood being hardened during the years. However, only GOOD old instruments produce this result. Old instruments that are good enough to buy should never be less than $10,000. If they are are less, you are better off spending that money on a new cello.
