Default Looking to buy a new laptop

I don't know a lot about what to look for, so I figured I'd post here, anyway, here is what I'm looking for.

Budget: Preferably under $500, but can go to $550 if it is really worth it

Use: School and online flash games/minecraft.

Extra: Preferably a lot of memory


Thank you,
Kevin

I have recently gotten an Antec Aspire AS5750-6589. And can play minecraft fine, for me. Also I like how it can cool very well, even under heavy load. I ran a stress test on it, and it never got more than lukewarm underneath. Also it is ultra-portable.

I can't seem to find the exact model on Newegg or eBay. (where I got mine, but directly from Antec)

But these specs might help you in searching for another laptop: AS5750-6589 | Product Model

These are good products as well, but they are out of stock atm: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=-1&IsNodeId=1&Description=AS5750&bop=And&CompareIte mList=-1|34-215-270^34-215-270-TS%2C34-215-271^34-215-271-TS

Not trying to nitpick, just wanted to make sure there wasn't something else out there that I didn't know about.

I did post a link to the product, so you would see it's an Acer.
