any brand, 15”, screen can be not great but it’s much better it is, upgradable ram, hdd, and possibly wifi card, it has a m.2 slot or cd drive(if it still exist because i can just put another hdd using caddy there), and if possible removable battery( even though it doesn’t exist anymore on higher prices)

The expensive ones let you do that. The cheaper ones are sealed.

I recently setup a new laptop for someone. It's the acer with a Ryzen3-3200U. $380cnd so about $300US. It's pretty fast. All of the gaming classics run well on it like COD1-4, FEAR, Dirt2,3, Prostreet, Shift, Gasguzzlers extreme, Left4dead2. And games like a new poolgame using the new Unreal 4 engine. Also unreal 3, ect. It's not gonna play games like BF1, COD WWII, GTAV, ect.
-This laptop is glued together so no upgrades except for stuff in the usb ports.

There is a option to change form windows10s to normal windows 10. Oddly you go to window's store and it's in there when you search for it. You can't go back to the 10s mode however.

They kinda lack hdd space and you don't want a big usb stick so it gets hit breaking the port and board.

Also a Xbox 360 or Xbox 1 controller is nice, or a bluetooth

Fortnight one, and has a option to include fortnight.

Some older ones don't work...

A usb or bluetooth mouse is good. Also a HDMI cable so it can work as a big screen gaming console. A usb keyboard.

Real Microsoft 360 wired controller (I hope it's not a fake knockoff)
