I am looking for a brand new 2017 laptop or 2 in 1 laptop for my brother. The laptop needs to be able to handle Overwatch, TF2, and CSGO. I'm only looking to spend $300 - $400 on the laptop, but if i have to can go up to $455 max.

A 2-in-1 in that price range will have a low end CPU (Atom series) and while it will likely be able to play TF2 and CSGO, you will likely only get mediocre performance.

Within your $300 to $400 budget, the best laptop you can get is the following 15.6" laptop with a Core i3-7100u and Intel HD 620 integrated graphics core for $350. It also has a 1080p screen, but you may want to play games at 1366x768 or 1600x900 resolution for better performance.

For $413 you can get the following 17.3" HP laptop with a Core i5-7200u and Intel HD 620. The Core i5-7200u basically has higher clockspeed than the i3-7100u. It only has a 1600x900 resolution screen.

For $479 (above your budget), you can buy the following 15.6" HP laptop with a Core i5-7200u and Intel HD 620. It only has a 1366x768 resolution screen, but it is a touchscreen if that matters to you.
