I want to see if there is any laptops i can find that can record minecraft, and only minecraft, at 40+fps. I would like to have windows 8.1, but other Operating systems are fine. Im kinda a computer noob too, so i cant build one.. Im looking to buy it in the next week or two. Thanks for your help :D

Not much choice at your budget, basically you have to get one with an APU. Here's one that meets your budget: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/series-3-15-6-laptop-4gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive-black/1307521847.p?id=mp1307521847&skuId=1307521847&st=categoryid$abcat0502000&cp=1&lp=1#tab=buyingOptions

Here's one that is over budget, and refurbished but better:

I don't have time to research the PERFORMANCE of these APU's for Minecraft, or what recording software works properly (and how much the frame rate drop is) so you'll have to do that.

Get one with an NVIDIA GPU that supports Shadowplay, though the budget is a problem.

Be aware that NVidia has this working recently but there's still a few glitches as I don't know if Windows 8 + Minecraft works yet. Regardless, it WILL work soonish.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "only" Minecraft. If you use regular recording software you'll get a big performance drop which is why I suggest an NVidia GPU to use Shadowplay (5% to 10% drop), but again your budget is right at the BOTTOM of laptops so you won't have much choice.

I mean that the laptop will be exclusively for minecraft. I wont be playing any other games on it. And ill be sure to look for the Nvidia gpu. I honestly dont mind if its new or used either. I just need an upgrade.. My laptop that i have right now, is massively slow. I get about 15 fps on the lowest setting possible.-.
