My son needs a laptop for school work but also wants to be able to play games on it - Minecraft is his current favourite. Can someone please suggest one that might be suitable. Thank you.

what's your price range?? If the budget is not a issue you might just go with this HP dv6t 15.6" i7 1080p Notebook w/ Blu-ray $855.

Not bad stuff. Hope u find the best stuff for your son. Good luck.

Thanks for your suggestion - is the laptop you recommend a Hewlett Packard? we live in the UK so need to check out if it is available to us here.

Thanks for your reply - I have a MacBook Air and my son uses that! He says tho that it's not good enough for the game he plays (server based - Minecraft) and that it 'lags'! I am not sure about this tho!

Minecraft is a very resource intensive game. The laptop you buy will need to have a dedicated GPU for it to run properly.
