She has a budget of about $600 and she wants it mainly to play Minecraft on it, though it would be good if it could play other games reasonably as well.
I have some ideas of my own but I'd thought I'd make a topic here and see what other people can come up with. Right now I'm thinking something with a good AMD APU, but since Minecraft is heavily CPU dependent then there may be better options that would also handle other games reasonably well.
Yeah that seems like the best option for the price. Seems like she could probably get something with an AMD A-10 APU, which as far as I can tell, should run minecraft perfectly fine and it should even handle most current games on at least medium settings at regular laptop resolutions(768p).
But when I was looking around, it was pretty confusing all the different APUs there are. Anything in particular to watch out for or should I just look into something with a newer A10 in it for her?
