I would rule out the ASUS if only because they decided to mix old GPU tech with a shiny new CPU.

Y520 is certainly the better value for money. Quad core CPU with hyperthreading, fastest GPU here, and an SSD.

The first option has the best specs (CPU, GPU, SSD) at a very good price. Much faster than the second option (8250u) for only a little more money. And agree with the the other comment that 940MX is old and way slower than the 1050Ti.
