Both Acer and Asus are almost identical spec except for graphic card. If this laptop is for basic like doc, powerpoint, web surfing, video, etc both should do the job. You can read more reviews online or watch in youtube. As for the Lenovo, it is last gen AMD. U might want to look into newer 4000s.

As I used Asus before, I am more bias towards Asus.

All 3 also budget... S145 no usb-c port. And heavier than VivoBook. But seems like ram is upgradeable.

Up to you ba.

Screen
Asus Fhd ips panel 38 %srgb
Lenovo Fhd tn panel
Acer hd ips panel 1366 × 768

All laptop screen cui. Need external monitor

Processor
Asus i5
Lenovo ryzen 3000 outdated liao no!
Acer i5

soldered ram uplorry com unusable

Wifi

Lenovo ac outdated
Acer ax latest

Battery
Asus 37Wh
Lenovo 35 Wh
Acer 51 Wh

Graphic card:
Asus Mx330 best
Lenovo Vega 8 soso
Acer Mx250 slightly worst than the mx330

Asus link: https://www.notebookcheck.net/ASUS-V....431776.0.html

Lenovo link: http://dealunboxing.com/lenovo-ideap...xing-teardown/

Acer: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Acer-A....453635.0.html

Final note: acer have more ports. Pay more to get the fhd ips screen to be more worth. Bigger battery will ensure the com last long time.

Asus: best among the three for light gaming. If plugged in all the time , 37wh battery cap can be off set

Lenovo: cheapest. Buy if you can tahan the bad screen and enjoy longer warranty i guess?

Tldr: If budget is tight, take the asus.
