I'm looking for a good mid range gaming laptop that will play League of Legends, Archeage, Minecraft etc. Not looking for the best performance, but just enough to make it enjoyable and playable. For the school side of things, I'll be working with Adobe Audition, Finale, and some other applications. 15.6 in minimum. I'll be willing to go down to 1600x900.
