Hi guys

I'm going to buy a laptop so I'd like to know which one of the following configs has a better performance:
1- Acer Nitro V17, Core i7-6700hq + GTX 960m 4gb + 16 GB DDR4 (used)
2- Acer a515-51G, Core i5-8250u+ MX150 2 gb + 16 GB DDR4 (new)
3- Lenovo ideapad 320, Core i7-8550u + MX150 2 gb + 16 GB DDR4 (almost new)
I'd like to play games at high settings and medium resolution (1080p) as well as some programming and casual everyday use

The 960M and the MX150 are pretty close to the same speeds. You will not be able to play new games at high settings at 1080 with any of those laptops. You are also starting at the low end of video cards, which means in the future games will run even worse.

I'd keep looking or saving some more money and get a system with at least a 1050 or 1050 Ti card for gaming.

If for some reason you need to get one of those systems and get it now, the used Nitro would be fastest in gaming, but no warranty since it's used, you need to decide if 10-15% better fps is worth losing warranty coverage.
