Lumix TZ70 vs T71 newbie question

Hi, I'm shopping for a camera for my girlfriend here in germany.

I can't figure out the difference between these two models.
The only thing I see is 2x vs 4x digital zoom (someone here pointed out in a thread) and according to a website comparison: different min and max focal distances.
What do those min/max distances mean, exactly?

The min, I think I get. One can only focus down to that distance.

The max, I don't get. One can only focus on something 129 or 720 mm away? Nah, that makes no sense.

Anyone help me out here? 
Is the digital zoom at all important?

One thing: my gf really loves shooting tiny things up close. So would she like the closer focal distance of the 71 better?
