She wants one for her and her son to use. Just has to be able to play minecraft and other simple games like that. She's looking to spend about $500-$550. You guys have any suggestions?

I would get that. One of the few or only model out with the new AMD chip IIRC. Which will put it leads ahead of just a laptop with an intel chip with no dgpu for some light gaming. Or if you see a good deal on something with a mx150.

Its on display on BestBuy too.

Minecraft needs a dedicated GPU, no amount of optifine will get it to run properly. I would know, I played it for years on integrated graphics, ran like s*** and yes the rest of the specs was good.

What are you on about? That are laptops that are marketed towards gamers and are actually pretty decent.

For portability purposes, a gaming laptop can't really be beat.

tell her to get an iPad instead. the graphics chip on even the 2017 non-pro ipad is better than integrated crap on cheap walmart laptops.
I'll... shave that cat.
