Both are not very good for exclusive gaming, you'll need to look at higher end more expensive ones if you want an exclusive gaming laptop, and minecraft isn't all that demanding.

Out of the 2, my personal suggestion would be the MSI. However, I'd look at getting something a bit higher end if you're serious about playing games.

Minecraft is not a "high demanding game". Pretty much any laptop with a discrete graphics card would be fine.

For things like Minecraft you'd probably be fine with Intel HD 4000 or newer. I would still get something with discrete graphics though if I were you, like AznGOD is telling you.

I would buy a laptop with at least an GT 840m for mild gaming, you really won't pay much more, also having done it the intel HD 4000 can run minecraft, but its performance is choppy.

When buying laptops/PC's theirs a certain "golden" price to performance ratio, which disappears in the very high end category of products and the low end, with the two laptops you are looking at, you are paying quite a bit more for what you are actually getting since they are priced at the very low end, so to make them profitable they need to be priced quite a bit higher than what they are actually worth, and as such makes their price to performance poor. But if your absolutely set on either one of these two, go with the MSI its better.

I can't answer that, FPS in minecraft varies wildly, it'll be fine don't worry, and if your purchasing the laptop you can just find out yourself.

Both if the laptops are OK but I would recommend the MSI, although as some other people suggested try getting a better graphics card. I wouldn't really get a Intel Graphics card if I was you. I hope this helped. ;)
