Any current gen PC

As kj5155 says, any current generation computer (laptop or desktop) will run minecraft and provide a great gaming experience.
Though minecraft provides the ability to create complex and intricate worlds, it doesn't use a lot of graphics or CPU. A pc that runs about 500-700 will be good. If you want to splurge spend $1000 or more, take the $19,000 you saved from not buying the $20,000 supercomputer, to play minecraft.

All current PCs

All current PCs could run Minecraft. A 64-bit OS, 4 GB memory, with a 64-bit version of Oracle's Java installed.
