Well I was thinking around £300 but I think I am way under with my pricing ? I have tried looking on Amazon and the are in excess of £500 ?

Yes, you won't get much for 300.

Maybe eBay ..

You can get terraria for ps4 so why need a pc ?

He has terraria on his PS4 .. He has been using his laptop to play games on line and keeps saying its lagging. I am confused and have tried telling him that he his wasting money but he say's its what he want for Christmas : (

I would say check eBay as you might be able to get a fist /second gen i5 system for about 300 and you'd be able to add a decent gpu later

my wee girl is the same she wants laptop for minecraft but already has it on xbox one, ps3 and ipad but apparently you can get "mods" and more levels on pc.

Don't know if this is any help, bought my sons laptops that they use for games, just made sure I got ones with dedicated graphics, they have been fine, used mostly for skyrim, sims, minecraft and games from steam, had no problems with them and all the games they have wanted have played fine x
