Do you only want to play Minecraft, or are you looking to play other games as well?

Thanks for the quick reply, and yeah I mostly just want to play Minecraft and other flash games but if it is more powerful it will easily be able to play those so only Minecraft.

EDIT: I found these on Newegg let me know what you think

That Samsung R model is your best bet if you want something longer than 1 year but it's horribly over priced.

You will want something like a dedicated GPU, a 5650 will do fine, for minecraft. Trust me, unless you're going to be using the lowest possible settings and FOV reduced to the lowest settings, those other laptops are crap.
