Need advice on a new laptop!

Hello everyone and thank you for taking the time to help me.
I am currently looking into purchasing a new laptop and would love some advice. I have primarily been looking at HP and Dell laptops but I am open to other manufacturers. My price range is between $550 and $650. I would primarily be using it for word processing, video streaming, and some not so graphics intensive games such as League of Legends. I would be open to getting a laptop with a dedicated graphics card, however I'm not sure if this would cause the laptop to overheat.

The laptop I am leaning towards right now can be found at bestbuy at this link http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+15.6%22+Pavilion+Laptop+-+6GB+Memory+-+640GB+Hard+Drive+-+Dark+Umber/4815065.p?id=1218533331581&skuId=4815065#tabbed-customerreviews
I am also looking into customizing one on HP's website.
