    Laptop for low end games

    Hey guys. im going to 4 year after this semester and i need to buy a laptop. the only games i would want to play are WoW and LoL. i have no problem running them at min specs but i would like to have decent frame rate. the only thing i am worried about is the video card requirements. if i buy a laptop with a video card it will probably be out of my price range. do any manufacturer have better then average integrated video or am i screwed? i plan on buying one from microcenter because they always seem to be the cheapest.

    Lenovo's Y500 series seems to be best value for money on low/mid range laptops when you need to work with it too, prices start from ~$600. Just make sure to pick a model with discrete graphics too, not only integrated Intel chip.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    also i would like to avoid asus. i had a g71gx that broke at least 6 times; from the screen, to the plug in port, mother board, ect. i had full warranty but the pain of having a machine that wont work left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Don't expect anything amazing at that price range for a laptop running WoW - I do not know how well it would perform but it's on sale.

    That should technically even play games like gw2 and maybe even black ops 2 on the lowest settings. Not saying black ops would be playable but it would run?

    I have a laptop much worse then that one you linked and it handles wow on a mix of low and medium settings with 40 fps in the world of pandaria and about 10-15 in raids. 40-80 in dungeons. I can even get up to around 110 fps in OL

    Can you make it 650$? does this budget include tax and shipping?

    You can get some nice laptops for 650$[/URL] - Samsung NP350V3C and the Acer V3 both with good gaming performance for the money:
