There's a good chance that none of these will run AC:Unity. They all use on-die graphics processing which is not very good for gaming. Laptops in general will struggle to run most modern games. If you're deadset on a laptop, consider something from the gaming lineups offered by Asus, Acer, CyberPowerPC, etc. These laptops have dedicated graphics chips to improve performance and make them viable for gaming.

Gaming on a budget laptop is hard to do. If you do want to try, make sure it is a i5 not i7 and get one that has discrete graphics rather than the Intel one.

Also, 14" is the minimum unless you like squinting.

Hope that helps.

I own a Lenovo laptop, 1 month old. Bought it for price. But all my friends that work in Asus n Acer know that Lenovo has the cheapest components. Just saying.

If I were to buy a gaming laptop I'd look at CPU and GPU. If there is no discrete GPU I have to use the Intel HD graphics then I would not buy that. Why? You need, not have to, but need to have a discrete GPU for good gaming. If you like minesweeper then no discrete GPU is fine.

Lenovo has the Y series. I'd look into that if you want to buy Lenovo.
