Right, so my little brother has this massive fascination with Minecraft. He has it on Xbox 360, PS3 and Vita - but that's not enough. He's gotten it into his head (from school I'd imagine) that he now needs a PC to play it on.

This is where you guys come in because although I'm a proud to call myself a gamer, I haven't got the foggiest about PCs and gaming on them.

Of course it doesn't need to be some massive gaming rig that costs hundreds of thousands to put together - probably just a simple little home PC or laptop. I'm assuming most if not all will be able to run it fine?

So yeah, help?! :-o :oops:

I'd avoid a laptop unless you REALLY need the portability - but yeah, mostly anything will run it. I've just about manage to get it going on my Raspberry Pi before...
Anyways - I'll spec up something simple and drop you a line if you want?

Only a fool takes Khârn for a mindless brute or rabid dog. Under that blood-soaked helm lurks an intelligence and cunning that makes him a masterful killer - trust me when I say that there is a dark purpose in his madness.

I keep trying to steer them away from the laptop idea but his dad keeps suggesting it - he knows balls-all about tech so I'll just lie and say they don't work with it.

Thanks though man, that'd be a massive help.

People are saying these sub £100 Windows tablets aren't bad fro gaming, obviously not hard core stuff, I'll dig out the link to an article about this.

I can play quite a few games on this laptop, though there are some it can't quite handle (like Bioshock and Portal).

They do have it in black but its quite a bit more expensive.
