Too true, USAFRet, but here is what I got.

$350: i7-4600u, 8GB, 256GB SSD, Intel HD Graphics 620 + AMD Radeon (TM) HD 8500M/8700M

$330: i5-4300m, GT730m, 16GB of memory, my guess would be a 1366x768 display. Old business PCs tend to last longer than cheaply built ones, and parts are somewhat easy to come by:

I used to run WoW at 1600x900 on a GT740m and an i7-4700hq. That worked pretty well so 1366x768 will be easier., LoL shouldn't be that hard either. Might have to sacrifice a little on view distance and effects quality, but they would certainly run.


$303: Older AMD with integrated GPU only 4GB of memory:

A little overpriced at $365, but new: Integrated Vega 3 graphics, only 4GB of memory

Bestbuy was a bust, nothing in stock.
Walmart, nothing good

Beyond these, hit up ebay for a used gaming laptop?

On the first two, they are older, so if you want a good battery, the two lower ones might be more useful. That 4GB of memory though, not going to be great for sharing with the GPU.

Looking for a cheap gaming laptop to play games like wow and league of legands price 250-350 let me know if its possible thank you all
Check craigslist and facebook marketplace in your area and put aside the top of your budget if you want something you won't feel you wasted money on. I managed to buy an almost new ASUS laptop with a Ryzen 5 CPU and a Radeon 560 video card for $350, half price when new, and it was about 5 months old. Dell and some other makers had a good price on the systems with a 1050 or 1050 Ti video card, like this one https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Inspiron-7567-15-6in-Intel-Core-i5-7th-Gen-3-5GHz-16GB-RAM/373290101934?hash=item56e9d2ecae:g:FYMAAOSwH21feh5c They were about $700-800 when new depending on the sale.
