Hi, I will be starting college soon so i need to get a laptop. I plan on getting rid of my current current computer, and making my new laptop my one and only. I need it to be able to play Minecraft very well, on max settings, be good for everyday stuff (YouTube/Facebook), and it needs to be a very good school laptop. My maximum price is 1600, but I would like to keep it under 1200$ if possible. It needs to have a good battery life, and I would like a larger screen (16 inch+). Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was kinda looking at this samsung laptop (model# NP780Z5E-S01UB) but I am not sure yet. Also I apologize if this is under the wrong forum section. I am new to this site, and new to posting on forums

If all you're doing is that, get a mac. Seriously I don't own one but they last a long time. Thinkpads by Lenovo last a long time too. How soon do you want to upgrade?

Its no big deal LOL, :D  Apples last forever and thinkpads do too. I have an ASUS I really like. Do you plan on gaming more than minecraft? And mind you with texture packs minecraft can be extremely intensive LOL
