  1. Hey I'm looking to buy a new, mid range laptop for gaming. Mainly just LOL at the moment and I know both of these would handle it fine, but I'm wondering which would be the best performing laptop, so if anyone can help me out that'd be cool.

    #1 - http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=540174548

    Cpu- • Processor: Intel Core i5 Gen 2 2467M Processor (1.60GHz with Turbo Boost up to 2.30GHz,3MB L3 cache, 1333FSB) (duel core)
    Ram- 10gb
    Graphics card- Graphics: NVIDIA Geforce GT 640M 1024 MB Dedicated Graphics, supporting Microsoft Direct X 11

    #2- http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=539786297

    Cpu-The Lastest 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3612QM Processor 2.10 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.10 GHz (quad core)
    Ram- 16gb
    Graphcs card-# NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M -1GB Dedicated Video Ram

    Basically #1 has the better gfx card, but it is only a duel core with a worse processor. Either one has more than enough ram. I'm wondering if laptop #2 with the better processor, aswell as being a quad core, will out perform #1 when it comes to gaming even though it has a better gfx card due to it being a duel core with the worse processor.

    Any help and advice is appreciated, thanks.

    Both of those graphics cards are low-end and pretty lame, so you won't be going much hardcore gaming.

    Option 2 is better for you, though, IMO. I think LoL is more CPu dependent.
