Please help. I am looking at cheap laptops on Amazon and I want to know if the HP 15-af113cl will play games like TF2, Minecraft, and Unturned without lag or stutters. I'm currently using an HP Chromebook 14 with Linux, 2GB RAM, 16GB SSD, and an Intel Celeron 2955U CPU.

The HP 15 has:

Windows 10
AMD A8-7410 quad-core (2.2GHz-2.5GHz) with R5 graphics (can I upgrade that?)
15.6" 1366x768 HD display
6GB of DDR3 RAM
1TB 5400rpm HDD

I can't decide whether this will suffice my needs because I can't waist any money and I want to know if I can upgrade the APU. Is the cpu and gpu all-in-one so I have to just buy an APU that has better graphics? Please help.

Well, I want it to be maybe under $400. I know that sounds bad but I don't know if I can go higher. Windows 7 or 10 and no bigger than 17.3"

Well, maybe try looking on Amazon. I found a couple laptops with a GeForce 820m and an i5-5200U in them for a little over $400 (depends). Will that setup work for what i need? because I don't want to be under-powered for anything I play. This is what i saw... http://www.amazon.com/NEWEST-Inspiron-Laptop-i5-5200U-GeForce/dp/B018IN0GOA/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1461501182&sr=1-1&keywords=laptop+with+geforce

820M is just a tad stronger than GT 720, so if you find a good deal, you can take it.

Take a look at this list to see a range of options. You can do a lot better than that HP.

The F555LA is sub$-400 and at least has a 1920x1080 display. However, if you can boost your budget up to $479, the Acer Aspire E15 E5-574G would give you a 1080p display and Nvidia GT 940M dedicated graphics.

The R5 graphics you're looking at are integrated into the processor and isn't anything special. AMD kind of fails in the mobile market.
