I want to build a computer for my friend, and he will use it to play Minecraft, and use do homework. Please try to keep the budget a $250! And I already have a Windows 10 USB. Thanks!

Ah. If he had a desktop we could raid it for parts.

I wonder if somehow we can get the CPU out the laptop and use it for the desktop.

Not possible. Only thing you MIGHT be able to use is the Hard Drive.

How do you wipe it out? I might be able to use it.

For Minecraft this is the way to go. The pentium's intergrated graphics are good, it's quite a new chip and Minecraft is dependant on nothing but single core performance unless using shaders. It will struggle a bit with modpacks but it has a nice upgrade path, if your friend can get about 10-20 more bucks he will be able to toss in a bigger HDD for more storage too.
