    Does anyone here play Minecraft on the low end 15" MacBook Pro with the 256MB GPU? Preferably with the high-res screen.

    Basically I'm interested in knowing if I could play Minecraft full screen (clicking the green plus) on the 1680 resolution, and it would be even better if I could do it on the "fancy" graphics setting.

    Thank you!

    You shouldn't have any trouble playing Minecraft on this computer. That is of course you have 4GB RAM or above.

    I got the low end. I did not max stuff because I was getting some lag. Runs smooth, but dont expect max settings..

    graphics: fast
    GUI scale: normal
    Render Distance: normal
    Performance: max fps

    I got everything else OFF. I haven't played this game much, so there could be better configs, but this is a config that runs smooth.

    I run Minecraft at 1920 x 1080 resolution on my external monitor from a low-end 13" MBP with no issues. So you should have no issues at all on a 15" machine.
