Hi all. I'm currently working offshore on a ship for weeks at a time. We have satellite internet wi-fi and I would like to buy a gaming netbook for around $600 if that's possible. I've always built my own desktop PC's, but I've never owned a laptop, netbook, or tablet, so I'm very out of the loop as to what is available. I have no clue as to what constitutes a decent netbook video card, etc.

I don't need anything scorching hot as far as performance goes. I'd like something that will play Minecraft and Kerbal Space Program with a workable FPS. I'd like to watch Netflix and use the internet, too. A DVD player would be nice, but I'm not sure if netbooks even offer those. I'd be amenable to considering a laptop, also, but a smaller netbook would be preferable.

Perhaps a gaming netbook for this price isn't even possible, but I figured the MaximumPC forums would be a nice place to ask. :) I appreciate any help you guys could offer.

There's no such thing as a gaming netbook, unfortunately. The best advice I can give you is get something with the best specs for your budget. An AMD system would probably be better for gaming performance at this price point

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll look into the AMD APU's.
