Hello awesome people! I need your help to help me choose a laptop for my gf. She's a designer/student (uses Adobe PS & ILL) and a light gamer (Overwatch, Sims, indie games). I was looking to get her the best performance/price laptop and I found a lot of options. Ideal price would be around 300 but is hard to find a good one at that price. Please help me crossout some of the options in mind:

Acer Aspire E5 ($510): i5-5200u, 8 GB, 1TB HDD, GeFor. 940M, Win 10.
Acer E5 ($460): i5-6200u, 8 GB, 256 GB SSD, GeFor. 940MX, Win 10.
HP Notebook 15 ($460): i5-6200u, 8 GB, 1TB HDD, Intel HD 520, Win 10.
Acer Aspire E5 ($430): i5-7200u, 4GB, 1TB HDD, Intel HD 620, Win 10.
Asus F556 ($415): i5-6200u, 8GB, 256 SSD, Intel HD 520, Win 10.
Acer Laptop R5-571T ($400): i5-6200u, 8 GB, 1 TB HDD, Intel HD 520, Win 10.
HP 250 G5 ($360): i3-5005u, 8GB, 1 TB HDD, Intel HD 5500, Win 10.
Acer Aspire E5 ($350): i3-7100u, 4 GB, 1 TB HDD, Intel HD 620, Win 10.
Lenovo Ideapad 110 ($290): i3-6100u, 4 GB, 1 TB HDD, Intel HD 405, Win 10.
Lenovo Ideapad 110 ($260): AMD A4-7210, 4 GB, 1 TB HDD, AMD Radeon R3, Win 10.
Asus Chromebook Flip C100 ($260): Rockchip Quad-Core, 4 GB, 16 GB SSD, Mali-T764, Win 10.

She likes to chillout in bed before sleeping so a laptop with convertible and touchscreen options would be fine. Cheers!!

Ignore the Asus Chromebook. Windows programs cannot be installed on it.

The best laptop for playing games is the Acer E5 for $460 with the 940mx. Since your GF like to use the laptop in bed tell her that the laptop has to be placed on a hard surface to that the vents do not get blocked. Otherwise it can cause the laptop to overheat especially when playing games and that can cause permanent damage.
