Default Looking for a budget laptop

As the title would suggest, I'm looking for a laptop.
It's main function would be for my parents to learn a bit about computers.
But then I might use it from time to time so a bit of power would be nice.

Main stuff would be internet, movies (hd playback capability), word...
I'd like it to be able to play League of Legends on medium settings. does an Intel GMA 4500/5500HD have enough power?

I found this laptop Packard Bell Easynote TJ75-GN-520 prijzen | Core | Tweakers.net Pricewatch Edit: It's not in stock... guess that's why it's cheap Maybe HP G62-110ed (VY376EA)?

It's the cheapest i3 laptop I could find (530 euro). http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/cat/4...nnbazDcRiwllL-

Or would a cheaper t4400 be enough? It's weird that tj65 is the same price with a t440o processor while tj75 has an i3.

Other recommendations are welcome of course. Budget would be between 400-600 Euro. But the cheaper the better.

I'm also open for AMD ofcourse.

I would rather go with an Acer, ASUS, or Toshiba.

This has a bit better GPU: Toshiba Satellite L500-1ZR prijzen | Core | Tweakers.net Pricewatch
