Laptop for student

So my old Compaq laptop just died and I'm looking to buy a new laptop mainly for office applications, web browsing and movies. I already have a decent new PC so I don't need it for gaming or more demanding tasks. I'm stuck between this three :
LENOVO IdeaPad 110-15IBR for 300$
CPU: Pentium Quad Core N3710 1.60Ghz (Burst 2.56GHz)
SSD: 128gb
RAM: 4gb
GPU: Integrated Intel HD 405
Resolution: 1366 x 768

ACER Aspire ES1-532G which has the same CPU, RAM and screen resolution as Lenovo but has a 500gb HDD instead of 128gb SSD and a non integrated GeForce 920MX(2gb) GPU for a price of 330$.

Or HP 255 (W4M47EA) which again has 4gb RAM and 500gb HDD but has an AMD Quad-Core A6-7310 CPU and Radeon R4 integrated graphics and FullHD screen for 320$.

All three are 15.6" laptops and don't care for the price so much and I like the Lenovo best but can't really decide. Note that I will most likely expand the RAM to 8gb by the end of the year. So which one should I buy?

  1. I'd go with the Aspire. I've had limited experience with any Radeon-powered laptops, but from everything I've been told, they're subpar at best. You at least know you're getting some good performance, as seen here-

    - and, since you're not doing much gaming, it will help accelerate anything you might need the 920MX for. :)

    I would look into dell series 3000 intel or amd cpu, http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/inspiron-15-3567-laptop?ref=p13n_pdp_rv_m
    Dell permits monthly financing for like 20-25/month, so you can actually get a nicer laptop and pay over time. just a though.

  3. Lenovo Ideapad actually is a pretty good choice. I just wanna ask, if you don't care about the price then why not get an upgraded one right away?

  4. Because sodimm RAM is expensive as hell in my country(Serbia) and I'm not sure if I'll need 8gb just for office and web browsing. But I use Chrome for web browsing usually have open up to 12-14 tabs(main reason I opted for quad's instead of dual cores) and few notepad or word and PowerPoint pages open at the same time and RAM helps it a lot.
