Cheap netbook capable of playing minecraft?

Or if there is a laptop even cheaper, no more than the $300 range.

Netbooks won't run minecraft well.

Try to bump your budget up to $400-450 and go for a cheap AMD A series (like an A4 or A6).

I got an A6 and it runs MC well on fast graphics with far render.

An AMD E series MAY run it, but I wouldnt trust it. GPU power is adequate, but the E series CPUs are bottom of the barrel and will be barely passable for minecraft if usable at all.

tc, you will be surprised when you see how much of a resource hog Minecraft is.
