No. Not even remotely.

Don't be suckered in by AMD's APUs. In practice they're not much more powerful than Intel integrated graphics.

You have practically no chance of getting reasonable gaming performance from a laptop in this price range unless you go for a used laptop and get a very very good deal on it.

It has no dedicated graphics chip and only a low-power processor, so it's not great - but what sort of games would you intend to play on it? Examples of the games would be ideal.

basically my son is into roblox, and hello neighbour etc. So was hoping to get a laptop to run those games also be useful for homework.

Okay. I don't have expierience with either game, but from a quick check of the system requirements stated on the Steam store page for Hello Neighbor, a dedicated graphics chip is part of the minimum requirements (See where it quotes a "GTX 770") - which this laptop doesn't have. It could probably manage many 2D games reasonably, but anything modern with 3D graphics is likely to be a stretch,
