What kind of info are you looking for?

The specs for the Azahar can be found here

demo

they're both solid cedar tops

The best thing to do is try them both. If you've never played guitar before, bring a friend along who has and let him test drive them.

One solution is to buy them both, then you tell us which you prefer, Both are cedar top which is my favorite sound, so...what could possibly go wrong!

One thing I do know is that you should buy the one you prefer, and not worry about any price difference (unless you really cannot afford one or other).

Because, after you have owned it for a week and thereafter for years to come, you will have forgotten the price difference. Also you will be playing it for years, so any price difference over that time span will become irrelevant anyway.

Of course you may prefer the cheaper one, but price or 'value' should not be part of your decision in my opinion - go with the one you 'like' best. And for any reason: looks, sound, and the one I think is most important consideration - how good it feels for you to play - which includes the sound you can make with it, as well as how it feels in your hands.

You may find this hard to believe, 6, but my guitar buying days are over - I'm very happy with what I have, so I have no desire to buy anything more or different.

I'm not sure how they would thank me - because I kept buying guitars until I had an acoustic, a classical and an electric that I really liked. It was complicated by switching from right hand to left hand guitars in the middle of the process..

So I gave away one guitar, and I now have 4 guitars I should sell, but 2 of them are left handers and didn't sell first time I tried on ebay.
