Hello people!

I'm new here and hopefully I'm following all the rules of a post. So..my old laptop stopped working, I had it for 6 years and never had a problem until last week when it totally stopped working. The tech guy said it would be too expensive and hard to try to fix it. So I decided to buy a new one. The thing is:I recently moved to Italy and I'm short on cash to buy a good laptop. My budget is 500 euros, can't go over it. For my notebook I would like one where I can play some games, no need to be on HD and stuff(as with 500 euros it's not possible to find a top notch gaming notebook haha) but one where I could play some games. I used to play civ6, total war games cause that was what my old notebook could run..fortnite was not ideal but it would nice to play on a new laptop. And I like shooters, RPGs, strategy games..so I'd like to be able to run as many games as possible with this new budget laptop. In the future, when I have more cash I intend to buy an ideal one or even a desktop, but for the next 1,5-2 years I'll probably be stuck with this one. So I did some research and I believe it's better to buy a new one in Italy. In Mediaworld website I searched some models and came up with 3 options that I believe to be the best ones available at this 500 euro budget. I would like to ask you which of these ones are the best choice or even if you would give a suggestion of another model or what to do or where to buy. I'm all ears to suggestions! So these are the ones I've found:

1-HP 15 - Processore Intel® Core™ I5-7200U (2,5 GHz - 3 MB L3) HDD: 500 GB - RAM: 4 GB - Display 15,6',', WLED HD Ready WiFi IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - Bluetooth 4.2 Windows 10 Home 64 Graphics: AMD Radeon 520, 2 GB dedicata

2-Acer e5- Processore AMD A10-Series-9600P (2,4 GHz - 2 MB L3) HDD 1000 GB - RAM 8 GB - Display 15,6'' LED HD Ready WiFi IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac - Bluetooth 4.0 Windows 10 Home 64-bit Graphics- AMD Radeon R7 M440(2 GB dedicata)

3-Asus f555qg - Processore AMD A10-Series-A10-9620P (2,5 GHz - 2 MB L2) HDD 1000 GB - RAM 8 GB - Display 15,6'' LED WiFi IEEE 802.11b/g/n - Bluetooth 4.0 - Windows 10 Home 64-bit Graphics AMD Radeon R5 M430(2 GB dedicata)

I'm leaning between the Acer and Asus Notebooks cause my mom and a good friend had HP laptop and they both had problems in less than a year. But that was a while ago. So I'd like to know your opinion and suggestions.

Thanks guys! Cheers!
