The processor is extremely weak to say nothing of the fact that that is a very low end streaming machine more or less with limited memory and storage. Minecraft recommended requirements are an i5 4th gen or better (see link below), so this is not even close.

https://help.mojang.com/customer/...quirements


Recommended Requirements:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 3.5GHz / AMD A10-7800 APU 3.5 GHz or equivalent
RAM: 4GB
GPU: GeForce 700 Series or AMD Radeon Rx 200 Series (excluding integrated chipsets) with OpenGL 4.5
HDD: 4GB (SSD is recommended)
OS (recommended 64-bit):
- Windows: Windows 10
- macOS: macOS 10.12 Sierra
- Linux: Any modern distributions from 2014 onwards


That said, spending $200 on something like that is a complete waste in general imo as the machine is basically just for light duty. Look for a decent i5 based machine. It is probably going to cost you somewhere around $350-500.
