Looking long and hard at this one:

Asus S46CM
1.7GHz dual core i5 (ULV)
6GB RAM
635M w/ 2GB dedicated DDR3

I'm going to college soon so I want to be able to keep my laptop thin and light while still maintaining the ability to play games. Do you think I'll be able to run league on high (not necessarily ultra) settings, with Skype and 2-3 browser tabs in the background? I know it doesn't exactly have the highest settings and the 635M should be capable, but multitasking is a luxury I've always wanted to have and I am scared the processor is going to bottleneck me. I don't really know how many resources LoL eats up, so if you guys could estimate how that will work out I'd appreciate it.
