Any suggestions, I'd like it to be pretty good gaming wise incase I wanna crack out some lightweight games such as League on the move.

Thanks

I can suggest this laptop.

It use AMD A10-4600m + 7670m APU Crossfire which it should run lightweight games including hardcore games like BF3 or BF4.
It has a 5 hours of battery life, but you can make it longer by turning off the dedicated GPU and use the IGP to run LoL. ATI Radeon HD 7660G is decent for running LoL at a playable FPS I assume.

It cost $549.99 which I believe it is a good price for that powerful system.
I don't know about spending a $1000 for a gaming laptop just to run lightweight games.
To me, it is kind of waste of money.

You can grab HP's Sleekbook that use AMD APU ULV because the IGP itself is powerful enough to run LoL and giving your sleekbook a huge amount of battery life. Probably at least 9+ hours I guess?
