MY iGPU DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO RUN MINECRAFT AT MINIMUM SETTINGS BEYOND 2 FPS.
The laptop runs XP. Obviously the original version. 1.7.2 afaik, no Optifine(?).
The drivers only exist for Windows 2000, so I'm not surprised. It runs below 40FPS on Linux, even at 800x600.
Putting the team rocket in team rocket.
What about the toilet? Seems up for debate to me
If you can get your toilet to run a game without giving you the runs, go for it, and don't let anyone give you shit about it.
Never played bobbing for apples?
I did once as a child. It's kind of a weird game honestly, plus is it even sanitary?
IDK probably care too much about that stuff

Hold up. Do these have batteries?
I've thought of a similar concept, but much to my surprise, I never found any mention of companies actually making them. Not any with batteries, that is.
Personally, I just bought a laptop in that price range which, despite having "gaming" in the name, has an understated sleek/industrial design. Not as powerful as my mid-tier PC at home, but also not as expensive. Not far behind in price or performance, though.
Been there. My advice: Stop using a Pentium from 2009?
Spoiler: Actual advice if you can't upgrade
Make sure you don't have Dropbox or anything else eating up processing power. If you're using a computer that bad, someone probably owned it for a while before you, and may have left something like Dropbox, Norton, etc. draining the meager computing power. Go to Task Manager, and under "Startup," disable... everything. Absolutely everything. Check the icons on the taskbar (on the right side, including the ones hidden in the ^ menu) and right-click/close everything except for "Intel Graphics Control Panel."
Even a Pentium from late 2015, with 4GB RAM and iGPU, will run Minecraft at a very playable speed.
My thoughts exactly. Mainly as gaming laptops are more expensive than ever, and they can't be upgraded when they inevitably need an upgrade to run new games at high/max settings a few years down the road. I bought a fancy gaming laptop once, and have regretted it ever since. The money would have been much better spent upgrading my desktop, and streaming games to my cheap laptop.
Never personally, but most of the time I've seen it depicted, it was from a bucket or barrel, not a toilet.
Apparently, Nvidia recently started a streaming service that lets you use your own library of games and runs much better than Stadia, which might be a good option for people with that bad of PCs.
No Minecraft yet, but on the available games, it's actually good. It basically curb-stomps Stadia in every way.
Spoiler: Long Answer
Minecraft isn't available. It's only a fairly limited amount of Steam games for now. But anything that is available? Go for it. Free accounts are limited to one-hour sessions... as frequently as you want. Though, if it picks up too much popularity, you'll have to deal with a queue. When I tried two days ago, there was no queue.
Then again, it's possible their iGPU can't handle video decoding... and it's possible their internet connection is bad.
The delay through ethernet is actually surprisingly playable. (It's still very noticeable, but I'd say <100ms; I've seen far worse from Discord and Skype.) Delay on wifi would be way more bearable than <2 FPS.
All of the things Stadia did unexpectedly wrong, GeForce NOW does right. If you can stream video, you can stream GeForce NOW. And there's no difference from lowering in-game graphics settings, so run it maxed.
GeForce NOW makes Stadia look like an unfunny meme- bringing us back to the thread topic, I suppose.
