The best option that I know are asus n laptops. As all the games can be played using the igpu avoid getting one with a dgpu. Try and get a 4th gen ulv i5 and an ssd for the best performance. Or look at the msi ghost or apache range. I don't know how much cad $ are in terms of £ though.

Problem, Lenovo.com doesn't ship to Canada but, Lenovo.com/ca does at a $500 price inflation with no coupon codes or promo codes to compensate
