Hello. A friend of mine is looking forward buying a new laptop. He wants it for office activities but mostly for gaming. (Path of Exile, League of Legends, CSGO, World of Warcraft) Games that dont require many resources. He's ok with higher fps over quality so lowering the video quality of the games isnt a problem.
His budget is somewhere around $350-370 (roughly converted from RON - Romania).
He isnt able to order it from foreign websites (ebay,amazon,etc), so his options are limited.
I, personally, had a few bad experiences with a few brands, such as Acer,Fujitsu and HP and to be honest i'd only recommend something like Asus, as ive seen many people that didnt have any major problems with them.
Therefore i picked this laptop for him: http://www.pcgarage.ro/notebook-laptop/asus/156-quot-x540lj-hd-procesor-intel-core-i3-5005u-3m-cache-200-ghz-4gb-500gb-geforce-920m-2gb-freedos-chocolate-black/

, but im not entirely sure as i havent really followed the laptop markets in the last few years.
If it isnt too much to ask, which ones of those laptops would u recommend for his needs?

Bigger hard drive, I don't know where you're getting your numbers but the 920MX is faster .

CPU is the same.

the hard drive really isnt a problem for him. 500GB are just enough. So Laptop 1 should be the one to go with?

Could you please tell me what exactly made you choose that one? I know the 920mx (march 2016) from lenovo is newer comparea to 840m (march 2014). and the CPU is also slightly better, but as far as ive seen somehow the 840m offers more fps... somehow.
