Meh, maybe you're right. Depends on the store I guess. And the associate. Personally I'd be either giving them advice on how to defrag their hard drive/explain why they need to uninstall unused programs or, if they don't seem competent enough to do it themselves constantly, offer them one of those pc tune up programs like TuneUp Utilities 2012... Best Buy does have that whole geek squad thing too so that's another option the associate should be offering.

I am mostly basing what I'm saying on how I personally would act in these situations, so its possible that there are lots of employees that don't know better. I just hope there aren't :/

I would highly recommend not using a department store, seeing as tax and markups will have you spending an extra $400-$500.

I found a laptop at bestbuy that was $1,599.... I googled it from the store and found it online for $1100

Nope, you will be playing on low-medium with integrated graphics with serious dips in teamfights. I had an Asus laptop with an I5 and GT335m (nvidia card) that could barely do medium graphics at 1600x900.

Maybe you should tell us how much you want to spend, and i'll pick something off of Newegg.com that will be better than anything you will find in a store.

My guess is it will play the game on medium at a stable fps

i just dont know how to tell if the graphics are integrated or not
Really, the only way is to just have it memorized. But I can tell you 1 thing, it it's under 600 dollars, it's either integrated, or dedicated from 2005
