First. Do not take item 3.

The 9600's are too similar to the failed 8600 to go near. Type 8600 recall at google to learn more.

" used gaming laptop " is a very bad idea. Most are 2 year affairs then they need repairs. You are getting the machine worn out and will not much life left.

I strongly suggest you don't do this unless you get it so cheap that you can afford a new motherboard and other repairs.

Just had my son checkout Minecraft on a Samsung RV515 and it looks like it runs OK. Not a big test but thought I add this.
