I agree, If it's not the ram then it's definitely the cpu.

Though it DOES lag horribly for the first few games you play. It did so for the first five or six long sessions in game, lasting for around an hour or so each. I cranked up the settings to full just the other day on my laptop and it handles the game fine. Dunno otherwise.

I imagine it's because it's rendering out the entire world around you as you move. Remember it's gotta create it as you move.
I never thought of this, if she is playing Singleplayerhe computer is going to do all the work like generating map chunks, spawning mobs, u name it...

If she plays on multiplayer she may see better performance, its worth a shot
