    Hi. As the title says, im after a cheap laptop for my daughter's birthday that is capable of playing Minecraft, she won't be running mods or anything like that.
    She has an iPad mini with Minecraft on that but she has been struggling to find a birthday present that she's wants so settled on a laptop so she can play Minecraft with her best friend.
    Our budget is no more than £350 please, the cheaper the better

    Thank you.

    You might struggle to get something new that will play it half decently so you could have a look at the forums. That said, Minecraft has crossplay so im pretty sure you can play with PC players while on an iPad?

    Really? I expected that sort of money to be plenty to play Minecraft. I can play it on my phone!
    Maybe i'l have to get her to choose something else.
    I wouldn't ever buy a pre-owned laptoo/computer.
    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    TLDR. Any £350 laptop will run Minecraft no problem.

    Thanks for that.
    I have found a laptop at Currys that was £500 and is now £300, it's got an i3 processor and 8gb of ram. It looks to be good enough to run Minecraft and a few other games that are more demanding according to the spec list.
