The Asus looks to come with the 2GB VRAM 940MX. The Lenovo would be better overall as the MX150 is a better GPU for gaming however the CPU might limit actual performance being a dual core with 4 threads vs the Asus with a 4 core with 8 threads.

Source based games like faster CPUs. However both GPUs are pretty close to each other spec wise with the 940mx supporting 4GB of VRAM and the MX150 supporting 2GB. The MX150 is faster, faster base and boost clock speed, however.

Do you have the laptop models available?
