If the budget is not a issue you might just go with this HP dv6t 15.6" i7 1080p Notebook w/ Blu-ray $855. http://www.dealstudio.com/searchdeals.php?type=id&q=d29... Not bad stuff.

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!

The laptop you buy will need to have a dedicated GPU for it to run properly. charley264 October 15, 2011 11:02:01 AM vigilante212 said:Minecraft is a very resource intensive game.
