$300-$320 laptop that can run CS:GO on low settings (50-60 fps)

I know that there aren't any gaming laptops for $300 but I want a good laptop that I can watch YouTube and play CS:GO at 50-60 fps. Please don't say that "No laptop can do that". I want a solution. Thank you

    The Lenovo Ideapad 110 with a Core i3-6100u and Intel HD 520 graphics core is basically the best laptop you can buy for $300.

    Here's a video of CSGO being played on a more expensive Dell XPS 13 with a Core i5-6200u and the Intel HD 520. MSI Afterburner was used to record the video so that causes FPS to be lower. Are you going to get a consistent 50 FPS to 60 FPS with a Core i3-6100u and Intel HD 520? No, not without increasing your budget.

  2. Well there are some laptops available in the market which has amd a6 or a8 processor at the price of $300.

    Amd a series processor are known for both cpu and gpu in a single chip. Intel skylake and kabylake processors also comes with good intergrated graphics but they are expensive in comparison of amd a series laptops.

    My second advise is not technical but you need to buy a used laptop because if you spend $300 on a used laptop you will get more powerful laptop as compared to new.

    It actually depends on which AMD APU (and it's graphics core) you are trying to compare to which Intel CPU (and graphics core).

    Below are CSGO benchmarks for 4 Intel graphic core and 4 AMD graphic cores. A screenshot and link to the website is provided. They are as follows; the number in the left column represent the overall rank of the graphics core and clicking the name of the graphics core will bring to to a webpage with additional information about it:

    Radeon R5 (Stoney Ridge) - AMD A9-9410
    Radeon R6 (Carrizo) - AMD A8-8800p & AMD A10-8700p
    Radeon R5 (Beema) - AMD A8-7410
    Radeon R4 (Beema) - AMD A6-7310
    Intel HD 620 - 7th generation Intel Core i3 / i5/ i7
    Intel HD 520 - 6th generation Intel Core i3 / i5/ i7
    Intel HD 5500 - 5th generation Intel Core i3 / i5/ i7
    Intel HD 4000 - 3rd generation Intel Core i3 / i5/ i7

    Theses graphic core can generally be found in laptops priced at $400 or less.on Amazon.com; the exception would be the A8-8800p since it appears there are no laptops with that APU for sale on Amazon.

    While the Radeon R5 (Stone Ridge) in the A9-9410 is newer than the Radeon R5 (Beema/Carrizo-L) in the older A8-7410 and Radeon R4 (Beema) in the older A6-7310, I am actually surprised that it performs worse.

  4. Based on the above, the 3 best graphics core for CSGO performance are the:

    #1 - Intel HD 620
    #2 - Intel HD 520
    #3 - AMD Radeon R5 (Carrizo)

    Prices change from time to time on Amazon. The Lenovo IdeaPad 110 I linked above no longer sells for $300. Below are the lowest prices of laptops that I can find with the 3 graphics cores I listed above at this point in time.
