I only have this crappy laptop I got as a gift 6 years ago. Whenever I try to stream any video above 480p 30fps the playback is slow and stuttery. Our new Smart TV can stream 1080p 60fps Youtube videos with no problem, so I know our Wifi isn't the problem. My laptop has:

- AMD E-300 with Radeon HD Graphics (2 Cores/2 Threads with 1.3 GHz base, 1.7 GHz Turbo)
- 3GB DDR3 Ram
- 300GB 5400RPM 2.5" HDD

Which of these is the limiting factor for watch HD Youtube videos and Twitch streams?

You did say it's a crappy laptop from 6 years ago yourself, and that didn't give you enough of a hint?

Well, yes, but I want to know which specific piece of crap in holding me back and if I can fix it. I can upgrade the Ram or HDD, but I can't do anything about the CPU or GPU.

The laptops wifi could be a problem. (Some older laptops could have rather slow Wi-Fi.) If you have a lan port on that laptop then try streaming through that and see if that will make a difference. If it does you could then try a usb Wi-Fi device to connect rather then your internal Wi-Fi. (Turn off the wifi on the laptop to make sure your really streaming through the lan.)
