Laptop for child starting highschool

Hey guys, was wondering if anyone would know a good laptop that can play League of Legends and Valorant at pretty good quality with high frame rate. It's going to be my little brother's birthday gift, he's just starting highschool and doesn't have a computer. He definitely needs one with all the word processing and projects there are in highschool. As well as probably needing a webcam for online classes, i'm not sure how highschool is going with the pandemic. He plays LoL and Valorant with his friends which I encourage because having friends is important as a teenager.

I was thinking something under $500. If it's possible.

Under $500 is simply not going to get the performance you're looking for (ie. being able to play League of Legends + Valorant). You'd be lucky to get a windows laptop at $500 CAD. Unless you increase your pricepoint to at least $1000, I can't really give any reccomendations. You can definitly find a laptop for highschool @ $500, but it will NOT be able to game.

I'd recommend looking for a gaming laptop with a 1650 or 1650TI graphics card for around $800-$900, which will run Valorant/league quite well. ... 0/14655790 ... _sb_s1000e
