I know you've heard the minecraft question a billion times...I feel like choosing a laptop to purchase for my son to play minecraft on could be a life-long project!!
I have found this laptop (on sale for $629.99) and it appears to meet the requirements of a decent minecraft machine:
Toshiba Satellite S55-B5155 Intel Core i7-5500U BROADWELL 15.6in 1080p Notebook Computer
- Intel Core i7-5500U 2.4GHz (3GHz Turbo Boost) Dual-Core BROADWELL CPU
- 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 802.11AC WiFi + Bluetooth 4.0
- Windows 8.1 operating system
- AMD Radeon R7 M260 2GB DDR3 discrete graphics w/ HDMI
- 2x USB 3.0, flash media card slot, 4-cell battery
- Weighs 4.85lbs, 15.6" 1366x768 LED LCD display
Thoughts? Would it be a good machine for minecraft or a so-so machine for minecraft?
Or take pity on me and recommend a good laptop for minecraft for less than $850
Thank you for taking the time to read and help!!
