I'm looking at the Asus T100 for a homework laptop for my daughter, but is she going to be able to play the full version of Minecraft game on it? I know about computers but don't know anything about Minecraft - she tells me playing it on an iPad is like a cut down version and she prefers playing it on our current PC. I have a horrible feeling an Asus hybrid laptop is only going to give her the iPad version of the game, is that right?
There are multiple versions of Minecraft, the original (full) version is the PC version, there are also versions for mobile devices (like the iPad) that don't have all the features of PC Minecraft.
The ASUS T100 is a laptop which runs Windows, so it can in theory run the PC version of Minecraft. It should run it decently well given the hardware in the device, there are videos of people running it on youtube for example
Yes, seeing the Asus T100 runs Windows RS, It is probebly not possible to play minecraft at all, because minecraft PE (the downcutted version) is only avaiable for Android 3.0+ or Ios 6+. for the full version you want to have an actual running any kind of windows XP or up. or any of the last 3 generations of macbooks. Also ubuntu, and ubuntu based linux OS's, will run minecraft
