I found a laptop with amd 5300U, 8GB ram, and Radeon graphics. Is it good and fast enough for normal usage and sometimes some games?

Yes If the games are not much demanding. I have this exact model (Lenovo Ideapad) and it is a beast! 10-14 hrs of battery life + very good performance. I play world of warcraft vanilla and spore, so it is good enough for me. Witcher would not be much enjoyable on this I guess.
