How good of a laptop would this be to play games on? I don't need it running 4k or nothing but I want something that can play like call of duty and not be choppy and unplayable

In my opinion, every intervention in RFD deserve a "thanks". Thanks given until now: more than 100,000

This is far from a gaming laptop.

That website was my go to when I was looking to buy a dirt cheap gaming laptop. I didn't care for graphics at the time so low settings @30 fps for AAA games was good enough for me.

Friends don't let friends buy old gen Dual core AMD mobile processors.

Poorer performance than a Pentium N5000. This is Netbook performance, not Laptop.

For Black Ops 2, minimal settings FHD (note the laptop here is HD), it's definitely playable (@28-35 FPS when not recording). Don't expect to play Warzone or any newer COD game. Multiplayer might play differently, just a warning.

Forgot to mention, the video I linked used the pc itself to record video, so the game may appear more "unstable" than normally run.

Personally, I'd stay away from this PC due to low resolution/consumer refurb, but people's circumstances may vary.

1366 x 768 for a 15.6" screen is horribly coarse and pixelized now that everyone is accustomed to the HD and/or FHD screen of smart phones and tablets. I would not touch it.

At the minimum, 1600x900 is merely passable for general office suites and basic youtube streaming.

Seconding this. I may consider 1366 x 768 for 12" laptops due to weird scaling on very specific legacy apps, but even at that, it's inadvisable for most people.

1366 x 768 on most 11" Chromebooks are usable too.
