Default Buying new laptop, bang for buck and quality.

So I'm looking to buy a new laptop on the cheap. I need one with good performance for price and I've come across these models:

1. Lenovo Ideapad 100-14IBD for 20500php (approx 410 USD)
Windows 10
i3-5005U 2.0Ghz
4GB RAM
1 TB HDD
Intel HD 5500 Graphics
Nvidia Gefore 920M 2GB DDR3
14.1 inch display at 1366x768
1.9kg

2. Acer Aspire E5-575G-37D2 for 23500 (approx 470 USD)
Windows 10
i3 7100U 2.4Ghz
4GB RAM
1TB HDD with slot for extra HDD
Intel 620 Graphics
Nvidia 940MX 2GB DDR5
15.6inch display at 1366x768
2.4kg

3. Lenovo IdeaPad 110 for 24000 (approx 480 USD)
Windows 10
AMD A9 9400 2.4Ghz
8GB RAM
1TB HDD
AMD Radeon R5 2GB
15.6 inch display at 1366x768
2.3kg

4. Dell Inspiron 14 3467 for 23000 (approx 460 USD)
Window s10
i3 6006U 2.0Ghz
4GB RAM
500GB HDD
Intel HD 620
AMD Radeon R5 M430 2GB DDR3
14 inch display 1366x768


5. HP 14-AM054TX for 22500 (approx 450 USD)
Windows 10
i3 6006U 2.0Ghz
500GB HDD
4GB RAM
Intel HD 520
AMD Radon R5 M430 DDR3 2GB
14inch WLED Brightview SVA display at 1366x768
1.94kg

I'm leaning towards the Acer but I don't know much about the brand other than 10 years ago they don't exactly have a good reputation in terms of quality. I've used HP, Toshiba and ASUS laptops before. The Acer does look to have the best bang for buck though.

Mostly just office work with occasional adobe photoshop and premiere work, but I do play a few games every now and then. No AAA games though. The most intensive I've probably played in the last couple of months is Starcraft 2 and modded Skyrim, and I played those on an i5 4200U + GeForce 720m.
