Looking for a laptop for a friend. He needs a gaming laptop equivalent or under $600 CAD. I know this is a bit of a hard request, but he'll only be running league, so it doesn't have to be any hardcore 800m series stuff lol.
It depends on your FPS target, and tolerance for hassle factor. My son runs chrubuntu (dual boot) on a Chromebook (Acer c720p touch, refurbished direct from acer, $260 on ebay) at 25-40 fps. He is not happy with framerate but the Celeron 2955u is playable. The toshiba chromebook 2 (Celeron 3215u) should be 10-15% faster, and has a nicer screen and keyboard, at $300.
