Hello, I am looking to buy a high-performance laptop to play games on. I play mainly Minecraft but would like a laptop to be the best I can get with my budget(so i can play other, more recent higher end games). The absolute max I will spend is 600. I know I am not going to get a gaming beast with 600, but i think that will be enough to get me something decent right? I have been looking around the web and have a few different laptops in mind. Can someone find a good pc for me? I would appreciate it.

$600 USD is not a lot of money. You can get the following Acer laptop with a quad core i5-8250u "low power consumption" CPU and nVidia mx150 dedicated GPU. While it's performance is between the previous generation nVidia GTX 950m and GTX 960m GPU, it is considered a "budget" GPU and definitely better than the nVidia 940mx which was the previous "budget GPU".

Increasing your budget to $750, you can buy a laptop with a quad core i5-7300HQ and a GTX 1050 GPU with an IPS screen like the following Dell Inspiron 7567 that is selling for just under that budget. The GTX 1050 GPU is considered to be the current minimum GPU to qualify as a "gaming GPU" by most gamers who are not restricted by low budget.

There are a few less expensive laptops with the same CPU and GPU, but they have a less expensive TN screen which has more limited viewing angles. The following MSI laptop for $700 is an example.
