The least expensive Toshiba laptop with a dedicated graphics chip is the Toshiba Satellite S50-BBT2G22 which is currently on sale for $630 (excluding tax). It has a Core i5-4210, Radeon R7 M260 GPU (between a nVidia GT 820m and GT 825m), a 1080p screen and 4GB of RAM.

You can purchase a 4GB stick of RAM for $26 and install it yourself.

The Radeon R7 M260 is no where near powerful enough to allow you to play games at 1080p resolution. It is a low end dedicated graphics chip that is more suitable for playing games at 1366x768 with low / medium graphic settings.

No. The Radeon R4 is weaker than Radeon R7 in the laptop I linked in my previous post. It is also slightly more expensive.

However, I believe the information about the laptop is incorrect. The Radeon R4 is an integrated graphics core so the only way a laptop can have that graphics core is if the laptop has an AMD A6-6310 APU which is far less powerful than the Intel Core i5-5200u. The Core i5-5200u comes integrated with the Intel HD 5500 and more powerful than the Radeon R4.

I Googled the L50-B1376 and there were no laptops with that model number.
