Looking to pick up a new laptop and it doesn't need to be able to do anything crazy other than code/browse and maybe audio recording/media stuff.

I would definitely like for it to play games like Overwatch, Maplestory2 and Black Squad etc.

Is there any noticeable benefit over getting a laptop with the newer Ryzen 5 chip(vega 8 graphics)? Been looking at gaming benchmarks for the AMD A12, and it seems to do pretty well with games and I'd only be spending 300 versus 380-420ish. But there arn't any direct comparisons and consistency between benchmark videos i find.

Thanks!
