    Hey!

    Could anyone recommend a suitable laptop that would run Minecraft perfectly? My price range is 100-550 euros, any laptop or netbook will do once it's in the range and can run games like Minecraft. Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post, feel free to move this mods if this belongs to the Laptop forum.

    Thanks! :)

    It can also play minecraft but you will need settings on medium

    That'll give you a guide to what you are looking for anyway

    If you're just going to be playing vanilla grab yourself the optifine mod, and any laptop in your price range should run it no problem. The larger modpacks like tekkit & FTB require surprisingly good hardware to run with a good frame rate, as well as the high definition texture packs.

    Hi, sorry for bringing this thread away from original point - but what sort of laptop would be needed to run (for example) FTB comfortably? - Anything in particular to look out for in the laptop? Thanks for any advice :pac:

    A sub 350 euro laptop with an AMD GPU would be enough. You can pick second hands ones on adverts for 200 that would do the job too.
