well, toshiba's are pretty good.
here is a link where i found something in your case. got the same, works great, and minecraft works fine. a good computer and lasts long. (mine lasted for 3 years and still works) although it's not the best latpop for gaming. i will get the alien ware for gaming which is much more expensive. but make sure you're not going to regret it after you get your choice, because gaming can get addicted that you want to get a laptop for gaming. there is also dell that makes some cheap computers that's good for school, and alright for gaming.
hope you will get what you want.
