It might, but I wouldn't want to since it has integrated graphics.
Check it with the minimum required hardware for the games in question.

The low resolution helps you out quite a bit. However, integrated graphics are going to be a major sticking point with any gaming. Particularly in LoL, lag will ruin your experience.

Then get something mITX and carry it with a monitor when you go to the other parent's house.

The other one you picked had a Graphics chip from NVIDIA the GeForce 940MX for playing games. look for laptops that are for playing games.

The HP does not have good graphic performance for playing games.

Here's a full Mini ITX build with Monitor and peripherals for under $800: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rgffsY

It's not perfect, but the CPU is clocked higher (and still has 4 threads), more RAM, SSD, and a far superior GPU.
i3 -6100 3.7GHz HT Dual Core - Great cheap gaming CPU. Does not OC
ASRock H110m-ITZ/ac - Mini ITX 1151 motherboard with WiFi AC. Does not OC
2x8GB G Skill Ripjaw V - Cheap, and plenty of RAM
Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - OS + LoL installed here will be much quicker than the laptop
Caviar Blue 1TB - Very cheap and reliable storage drive
Sapphire R9 380 - Great 1080p card, arguably the best card for under $200 new
Thermaltake Core V1 - Tiny case that still looks cool
Corsair CX430 - People will say that there are better PSUs, and they're right. But this one is Semi-Modular, affordable, and decent enough for your budget
Sceptre 24" 60Hz 1080p Monitor - Higher resolution and better refresh rate than the laptops you've linked
Cooler Master Devastator - Cheap and cool looking peripherals

Give us your max budget for a lap top. Then we can help.

Lugging any desktop and monitor is a major pain in the butt. The odd lan party is one thing but two houses and school on a regular basis? That is laptop territory.

I just toss my Hadron into a laundry basket and lug it around :shrug:
Only weighs about 15-20 pounds, easy to just snag under your arm and roll out with it.

Yeah you got that right! But I'd say $700. My mom is buying it for graduation, and i think she's dropping around 500, and I told her I'd spot the rest. And in May, I'm buying an AR-15, so I don't wanna spend too too much on or extra. So about 700
