What are thoughts on this computer? I would like to take advantage of the Xbox games that can play on windows 10. Will this suffice?

Which games specifically are you looking to play? There are not many play anywhere games yet.

My concern would be the Graphics card. Radeon R5 m430 is an entry level graphics card for laptops, not a gaming card. It would probably run some things at low settings low resolutions. I would buy a machine with a better GPU if gaming is your focus.

Between that U processor and the R5 I would not expect to play too many games on that machine. It would work for streaming from an xbox if that is your interest. Then again, any Windows machine could manage that.

If you are interested in finding a laptop that can do some gaming without being a dedicated gaming machine you should avoid the tablet/2-1 computers. They are built for low power usage which is basically the opposite of what you want.
