Hello people of the city-data computer forum! So obviously, I need some help. I'm going off to college in the fall and the time has of course come to start shopping for laptops! So, I was hoping you wonderfully smart people could help me.

So naturally I'm looking for a laptop that would be good for school, but I also enjoy playing games like Minecraft, League of Legends, and Civ V with some friends, so a laptop with a graphics card would be great. Windows 8 is preferred. Touch screen capability would be nice, but is not a must have of course. I'd also like decent processing power and la-dee-da. And I'm working with around 800$. So! A summary:

Important:
Portability (14 in. or so)
Good processor
Graphics card
Windows 8
800$ budget
Reliability

Not as important:
Touch screen


Thanks for the help!
