Budget: £450

I'm looking to buy a laptop that is fast for general work and can be used to play the occasional game like minecraft.

Do I need 8GB RAM or would 4GB be alright?
I'm gonna get a 256GB SSD cos that'll be enough storage and be much faster, I just don't know about the CPU cos there's so many different ones with different integrated graphics.

I don't know if I'll be able to get dedicated graphics with only £450, any suggestions?

Edit: Looking at this laptop https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-s145-15iwl-15-6-intel-core-i5-laptop-256-gb-ssd-grey-10197873-pdt.html

How is this above laptop the same price at this one below? This laptop below is better in every aspect, it seems, even the screen size is biggest so how is it the same price?

Dedicated graphics are not required for games like minecraft, although they will help.
You definitely do NOT want a laptop with 4gb ram. 8gb is a MINIMUM.

AMD Ryzen 5 3500u Quad Core with built in Radeon Vega 8 graphics.
8gb ram
256gb SSD

This laptop has a decent IGPU that will be able to run minecraft alright.
ok, I'm gonna get that one then. thanks for your help
