Hi peoples, I just wanted to know what laptop is best for school and simple gaming. The only games I would want on my laptop is League of Legends and Minecraft. I don't really care if I play on super low settings. Thanks!

Purchase the following 4GB stick of RAM for $26 and install it yourself. Having two sticks of RAM will help improve integrated graphics performance at little bit; 5% - 10% varies by game.
