I don't play minecraft.. on the net it says minimum requirements for the game iis nvidia 2xx chipset or AMD Radeon HD 5xxx Series. This is for a coworker who can spend only about 500-700. I found this one in frys:

Comes with Nvidia 820..

 

That should work correct? 

 

Know of any other suggestions? 

 

Best buy have around $800 and above

 

Thank you for the help

Yep, more than enough for MineCraft. You can check out here for an extensive rundown of what it's capable of, where it fits in the overall spectrum, and what kind of numbers to expect.

I think you need the latest version of the Razer Blade Pro gaming laptop in order to run MineCraft. Otherwise, it just won't be as enjoyable.
