      I'm thinking of purchasing a new laptop for my boyfriend for christmas specifically so he can play League, it has a little over the minimum for the CPU, 2.16 GHZ. The laptop is over the rest of the requirements but the CPU is the only thing I'm worried about. Any thoughts or suggestions would help a lot, thank you
