I have a minimal-used laptop except formatted for upgrading Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and Windows 8 Profesional on the Dell Inspiron laptop. Dell and Samsung are both reliable brands. If you are interested in the Dell laptop, you can check my store page at Amazon below. Please read the detailed condition note thoroughly.

Thanks for your consideration.

A 15" too big?!? They should fit fine in any normal notebook bag.

Also no need to buy antivirus. Windows XP through 7 you can download Microsoft's Security Essentials from their web site (or through Windows update). Windows 8 I think has it built in as Windows Defender.

That notebook has really low end specs. Looks really overpriced too. You'd want something with a GPU, either as a second chip, or if you want to go cheaper, AMD's A series, like an A8 or preferably A10 with a solid built in GPU would probably be fine for Minecraft and the like.
