I'm looking to buy a laptop for light gaming and school work.
Games I'm looking to play are older fps or Minecraft and the forest.
Laptop needs an operating system.

A new laptop for $200 does not get you very much. An example is the HP Stream 11 in the following video.

I recommend you consider the following refurbished Thinkpad T440 for $220 which is far more powerful than any new $200 laptop. It has a Core i5-4200u and Intel HD 4400 graphics core. It has 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. I assume the screen is 1366x768 resolution. If you want to play games then I recommend you buy a 4GB DDR3L RAM stick to upgrade to a total of 8GB for better performance.

There is nothing for $200 for minecraft unless you lower all settings and use the optifine mod even in a used system. If you are OK with a used system look for something with a 940m video card, there may be one available for $200, maybe. $200 systems are for the most basic of uses.
