" "17.3 Lenovo IdeaPad 300-17 80QH0009IV"
i found this laptop brand new and it's super cheap with i3 processor (i3 6100U) and 1900x600 screen and it has 4GB of ram
uhh is it a good laptop?
i was thinking of upgrading it later to make it my portable gaming computer but i'm wondering can i upgrade the ram? if yes how much can i add?
and can i upgrade it's video card? with a more powerful laptop video card?

for now i'm getting it for YouTube and online use because i built my own gaming PC a month ago but in the future i want it to be my portable gaming machine if that's possible

It is a decent laptop.
You can't upgrade laptops in terms of CPU or graphics, as they are typically a closed BIOS, meaning it simply will not allow you to upgrade components other than maybe RAM.
For a portable gaming machine you want to spend about $500 for a good refurbished one.
Let me know what your budget is in this regard and what games you play.

You told me super cheap, haven't given me a number yet.
Those games are pretty easy to run with the exception of The Crew, which there is no way you will be running given your rough budget.
To be able to play that you need a budget of around $500.

Noo don't be sorry
It's just the prices here are crazy expensive
I paid over 7k here to build my gaming desktop
It has:
Core i7 4790 (non k)
16gb ddr3 1600mhz with 1TB hdd and 240gb ssd
With Rx 480 8gb and 620watt psu
And it wasn't easy saving money for it
