The Raspberry Pi is a fully-functional Linux computer that costs less than $50. Admittedly, it isn’t as powerful as even a basic PC that you might have in your house, but it is awesome for using as a media center, browsing the internet and even running some retro games all whilst getting to grips with some basic programming skills in the process.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi project is to provide an affordable means to teach children basic IT skills and get people familiar with programming and the ins-and-outs of IT technology. Despite it’s charitable cause the Raspberry Pi is available to purchase worldwide for absolutely anyone.
At under $50 the Raspberry Pi is by far and away the cheapest option on which you can run Minecraft! With the correct leads you can hook up the Raspberry Pi to almost any TV! Check out the Raspberry Pi on Amazon.com.
