Okay, so christmas is coming up, and I need a computer that is under $500 (preferably under) that can run minecraft "decently". Any suggestions? Its not for me, but its for my sister.
I found this, but this is kinda pushing my price limit. Would this be good?

Are you willing to build? You'd get double the performance for the same price if you did.

In short, no that link computer is not worth it.


if you can, i suggest "building" the computer yourself.

Honestly, if he doesn't want to build it himself, that's about the best he'll get. I'm not sure how much better we could get if an OS needs to be included.

Also, your insistence that everyone build a desktop and that anyone considering a laptop or a prebuilt is an idiot is not welcome on these forums. If people don't want to build, that is their prerogative. If they want a laptop, I'm sure they have their reasons.

OP, are you open to building?
