This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
Intel's ARK site has the full details on the differences. Primarily, the 560m has support for the following where the 460m does not:
If you need any of those features, then pay the extra cash.

As per the specifications below, I'm not quite sure that it worth to pay like 100$ more for the 560M since it's almost the same except for the CPU frequency.
I would stick with an i5 460M or an i7 if there is a not huge price difference. So both are dual cores with (I think) four threads, so it is not a big deal between these two processors. I hope this will help you!
