Ok, thanks for all the information. And for people saying I can't play high-end game, I know I won't be able to. I already have a console that I play most games that you listed, and I want a Laptop for playing games like minecraft and terraria, and for the convenience of playing them on the go

How is 720p not playable? Most laptop screens are 720p. Also most games are playable in the 20-25FPS range.

And that is why I mentioned you only need a cuter with integrated intel graphics. Affordable, good battery life and good frames on minecraft and other games of that sort.

And games do not look good at that resolution at all. And last I checked, the most common laptop resolution was 1366x768. 20-25fps is only decent if you like seeing a PowerPoint instead of a game. It's not playable at all. 20-25 fps is laughable, especially when combined with low settings and a low resolution. Those conditions are literally funny. Watching people with intel chipsets on YouTube try to run crysis and skyrim is quite amusing. It's just wishing you had a card.

1366x768 is considered 720p. Also try playing games without a FPS counter. 20-25FPS is really quite smooth.

No that's like 10-15FPS. He gets 20-25FPs without fraps recording.

You have extremely low standards when it comes to playing games.

Compromises have to be made for portability.
