    Is this laptop:

    Good enough to play league of legends on? Note that I'm upgrading it from 2gb ram to 8gb, so omit that, cause I'm just wondering if the rest of the specs are okay. Feel free to suggest any other computers around that price btw

    Came here to say this. I have no idea why people don't spend the money now and get something decent rather then get something shit now and buy it again later on.

    LoL needs a 2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM. It will run. But Intel Core i3 M330 is old... 6, nearly 7 years old. You're better off buying something just a tad more recent to be able to handle basic stuff without issues.

    Also, I would consider upgrading the drive to a SSD as a priority. SSDs give old laptops new life.

    Thanks for the suggestions! And my budget is $200, for the laptop. Any extra things like ram can be omitted, cause imma buy those seperatlry, on a different budget. RN I just need laptop suggestions then. Preferably one that supports 8gb ram if you guys please?

    Your budget will never cover a laptop capable of heavy games like Battlefield 3. For that you'd need a gaming laptop which would mean minimum $700, and by then you're better off getting a gaming desktop.

    not necessarily true. I had a budget of $50 and got a Laptop with a Core i3 3110M intel HD 4000, and 6 GB of ram. suits me just fine. I can run everything I need or want to run. I don't play on high settings (having severely low vision, playing on anything over low quality usually hurts my eyes, though medium is okay in some cases, and I usually run skyrim on ultra.) it just depends on what you need/want your rig to be for. in most cases, I'd recommend a PC with a dual-core (preferably quad-core) intel i5 @2.6 ghz CPU (or better) an intel Iris Pro 5200 GPU (or better) and a BARE MINIMUM of 6 GB of ram. it'd be overkill for me though. except the GPU.

    Not neciserily, cause gaming laptops cost that much only cause they come stock with things like 4gb graphics cards, octa core processors, 300db stereo surround sound speakers, 32gb ram, 3TB HDD, etc.see its actually cheaper to just upgrade an existing one to fit your needs, provided it supports it, not to mention I'm buying them used/refurbished. I don't need 3TB cause the average gamer doesn't use more then like, 800gb


    BTW, how about this one?:

    what's your price range? I'd recommend Puget Systems but it doesn't seem like they're building Laptops right now. they offer a ton of customization.. you can build your own through them and then they'll ship it to you. but as I said it appears they're not doing laptops right now. here's a link to them anyway if you're interested. https://www.pugetsystems.com/

    also, try this one. might be a little overkill though. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-omen...-128gb-ssd-onyx-black/5319600.p?skuId=5319600
