Hello, I am looking for a laptop that can run games like minecraft, terraria, and war thunder (Not very demanding games) decently. I will also be using Microsoft word for typing school papers and such. It Also needs to be able to search the web and watch YouTube/Netflix. Thank you very much in advance!

Not new, you'd have to be on low settings and even then it may stutter without a mod. The one I linked is probably the best you can do.

For your budget there is nothing new that will run games well, even low spec games you will be on low settings and maybe slow even then. Minecraft likes a fast CPU, which a $400 laptop won't have.

This should be OK for general use https://www.amazon.com/Asus-X555YA-DB84Q-Radeon-DVDRW-Laptop/dp/B01GHQOCA4/ref=sr_1_6?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1472069442&sr=1-6&refinements=p_36%3A35000-40000%2Cp_n_condition-type%3A2224371011%2Cp_n_feature_four_browse-bin%3A9697949011

For a decent low spec gaming system, something with a 940m video card is OK, but is a few 100 over your budget.

I can go up to the 400 dollar range, but nothing over $500. I don't need to play minecraft on the highest settings, just to where there is no lag. Is there any laptop that fits this? Thanks.
