Hello all, I'm trying to see if it is possible to buy a laptop with a SSD for under $700? I use it to watch video and play games like League of legend. I don't plan to play any high setting games. I want it to have a SSD simply because it boost up the loading speed for a lot. Thank you!

Not really.

A SSD is usually found in more expensive laptops because a SSD itself is considered to be a somewhat expensive component itself. Especially if you are looking for a "high capacity" SSD. They are used in small and light laptops / ultrabooks which themselves carry a price premium due to the light weight.

The cheapest laptop with a SSD on Newegg.com is the TOSHIBA Portege Z835-P360 Ultrabook for $800. Note that it relies on the integrated Intel HD 3000 graphic core in the 1.4GHz Core i3 2367m. Good enough to play the Mass Effect trilogy, but I am not familiar with LoL.

It's possible - but probably a bad idea.
@ $700 a SSD takes up a lot of your budget.
That tends to impact other parts CPU/GPU that help you enjoy gaming more.

HP, for example, wants $290 to upgrade from a 500GB 5400rpm HDD to a 160GB SSD.
That would leave you just $410 for your other laptop parts.

You'd be better off buying a $600 laptop and buying your own 128GB SSD for $100 and making the change yourself.

buy a laptop for 550-600$ than add a 128GB SSD for ~120ish i did roughly the same thing with a little netbook i use for school, only with a 90GB i only need it for notes/office/internet.

integrated GPU laptops should play LoL fine.
