Laptop or desktop for Minecraft

Hubby and I would like to buy a laptop that will play Minecraft. Doesn’t have to do anything else or play anything else. Any thoughts as to what we can get specifically? I’m not familiar with all of the specs. Thanks!

Re: Laptop or desktop for Minecraft

The requirements for Minecraft are pretty minimal.  So most any computer will suffice.

 

However, whether or not to get a laptop or tower is completely  a personal decision.

 

Generally with towers you can get more for your money.  You can more easily upgrade them and you can have much larger monitors.  Well you can plug a larger monitor into a lap top as well.

 

Personally I use a laptop with a 17" screen.  I like it because I can sit in my easy chair in the living room and use it the way I will.

Did it used to work on your laptop?

 

What I was meaning is any new laptop or desktop should be able to play minecraft

Re: Laptop or desktop for Minecraft

Hi jtietsort!

Welcome to the Bestbuy forums! Buying a new laptop/desktop can be very exciting and playing Minecraft on it is only even more exciting (coming from somebody who has played Minecraft for hours in past!)

As it has been somewhat stated before it doesn't take much compared to most computers specs to play the game. Anything of this caliber will at least in some area of effect play decently on a minimal level Note I did a filter for Intel I3 and New

As far as laptop versus desktop I guess it really depends on where you will be playing? Many people like to take laptops so they can play wherever they want (living room etc)
