I am a MS Office user for my day's work at the office and then check mails and watch YT in my free time. But my son uses it for light gaming such as Overwatch and Dota 2 I think, so he needs a discrete GPU such as a MX150.
I'm thinking of the ACER Aspire E15 and Aspire 5 or the ASUS Vivobook or Zenbook Series with the i5-8250U and 8GB RAM with MX150. Can someone suggest me a few other alternatives satisfying the above needs between 600-800$? Thanx

The Acer represents a good value; it is basically the least expensive laptop with an 8th gen quad core i5-8250u CPU and the nVidia mx150 dedicated GPU.

Near the top of your budget is the following 15.6" ASUS M580VD-EB54 VivoBook for $794. It has a more powerful i5-7300HQ CPU (because it can sustain high clockspeeds for a long period of time unlike the i5-8250u) and it also has a GTX 1050 which is roughly 33% more powerful than the mx150 for better game performance. It is listed at 4.4lbs so it is lighter than your typical 15.6" laptop, however other sites lists this laptop as 5.1lbs.
