Here are a few laptops that should do the trick:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231765
pros: true quad core i7, cons: refurb, and a 2013 design.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231521
pros: True quad core, price. two GPUs in hybrid crossfire. Cons: A10 is not as powerful as i7, though still good enough

pros: strongest GPU, longest battery life. cons: only a dual core cpu, slower speed than the others

I would go with the second one suggested. Minecraft takes up a decent amount of RAM, and while 4gb should be fine, 8 cannot hurt. It also has 750gb of storage and is 1080p, which will look much better than either of the others. All three should run Minecraft just fine, though.
