I found both Higher and SG very enjoyable and informative on how the computer works. I don't think there are any difficult concepts to learn, but there is a lot to remember.

Int 2 would technically be easier as it only includes topics which get taken further to Higher level, and the course structure is the same.
Also makes the transition to higher easier as you have a stronger background in the subject.
