Technically an APU refers to a CPU with an IGP, not just the IGP, so the OP would be correct to ask which APU is good.

well i'll agree with that so long as nothing from the manufacturer claims the product to be a cpu , sure then

Well let me start at the beginning. I'm using a fairly old laptop (HP 2000 Notebook to be exact) and I'm trying to upgrade the parts. The board is an HP 188B motherboard (sorry if that's vague thats literally all I could find) 

My Budget is $200 or under

Im not sure you have the motherboard right as im not finding that board to be a laptop board. The 2000 range of hp laptops is pretty vast so youll need to narrow it down as some of the boards are bga which isnt a changeable cpu
