Oh that's not very good then.

So is there any way to make it be able to play better games or am I in need of a new pc?

And thank you for the fast reply.

Laptops and AIO PCs cannot typically be upgraded besides small things like RAM or the HDD. In that case, yes you would need a new PC to game with.
