I play Minecraft on a proper gaming rig. I almost never use laptops, except the one my college gave me for school work.
ASRock Extreme6 Z77 Motherboard
Intel i5 3570k @ 3.4GHz
MSI Radeon 7950 3GB GDDR5 Video RAM
32GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 RAM @ 1600mhz (I do other than gaming so I need the RAM)
550w PSU (I think Corsair or other good brand)
500GB Western Digital Caviar Black 7200rpm drive
1TB Western Digital 5400rpm drive
My laptop definitely slower that my PC, but it still can hold server and 5 people and far distange with fast graphics. (normal distance while recording with fraps). It's all depends of processing power.
I play on a PC, I have a laptop too but it's terrible, I get like 15-20 FPS on Short render distance!
