Im looking for a laptop under $550 that can play Minecraft, i would like some recommendations. Do you guys think this is a good deal? Or is there better? Im impressed by the fact that its processor speed is 2.90ghz and 3.50ghz turbo speed max.

Go with a laptop with the Core i5-4200u / i5-4210u with the integrated Intel HD 4400 graphics core. Both processing power and graphics performance of the Intel CPUs are better than what the AMD A8-6410 APU can manage.

I prefer Dell over Acer.

That laptop would be fine for Minecraft at lower settings. CPU speed on it's own does not mean much. The old P4 systems went up to 3.4 gig (maybe more don't remember exactly) but are slower by a lot than the A6 CPU you are looking at.

And this A6 CPU will be slower than an Intel i5 system with a slower speed.

I'm sure there is better, it would be a waste spending $500 on a really crappy laptop then when later you could spend $800 for a really good laptop.
