Cause me I've been playing Minecraft for not to long maybe a week or a bit longer. But what makes me want to quit this game is the lag. I get it on any internet acesses I use even the most fastest ones that I get a Green Bar in when I play Black Ops. I'm using a Netbook with 2 GB RAM. But I'm going to change on the 19th of June cause that's my B-day. Aside from that are there any lag reducing tips? Because I have tried setting Priorities high, Cp1 Usage and everything else.

You don't have a GPU. Basically, nothing can be done.

You most likely don't have a dedicated graphics card. 2GB ram is enough to run Minecraft.

Try the browser version of the game, rather then the downloaded version.

"Green Bar in when I play Black Ops. "

Does that measure framerate or latancy?  Or something else?
Check out my Minecraft (and other games) channel on youtube!  Lots of minecraft tutorials, Indie games and various LPs.

In Black Ops, the bars measure latency.  Under 200 MS is 3 bars that are green.  Under 100 MS is a full "4 bar" connection that is a lighter shade of green.  To answer the OP, you're playing on a netbook.  Can't really do much as they aren't very powerful.  You'll want a computer with a dedicated GPU and a faster processor than whats in your netbook, I assume its an Atom.  Not very good for gaming, more for simple internet tasks.  Do you need a laptop? If not, you get a lot more performance for your money going desktop.

Edited with more info. If you ask me it's a pretty good smaller laptop I don't know why Minecraft Lags for me so much. Any tips.
It may be that I don't have a GPU but I read that Intel made GPU's into CPU's so I think I have one because it does have Intel on it

Game is too CPU-dependent for your CPU.
