They’re very pretty but definitely not worth it for just 1080p60fps, Minecraft and movies

Assuming this post isn't a troll. A MacBook Air would suit your needs for media consumption and Minecraft on lower settings. If you are going to college its also going to be decent for note taking.

Unless the college provides workstations, you are gonna want something a little more powerful for graphic design. Also, there is no point at all in getting a Mac for what you are doing. You don't seem to need the software and you would be far better off in terms of cost and performance if you found a nice sleek Windows machine. If you don't like Windows and want the Mac for the desktop environment, I would install Elementary OS which is a Mac-like Linux distro.

Any of the mid-tier 2011-2013 MacBook Pro's would do, as long as you have 8gb of ram and at least dual core you'll be fine

add 300$ and get a mbp 13inch that one have good performance for its price i have a very similar question that i don't think its worth a new topic

i have a good pc right now and am learning 3d design and programming should i just upgrade it or buy a mbp ?

what i do is :

watching youtube 

minecraaaaaft

some video editing (not professional)

presentations 

surf web alot

3d design with a app called fusion 360 but i maybe will learn more apps

code (basic c++,html and css)

Exactly. I think that it would be worse to use a mac for that, due to their low power. 

well i mostly wanna use it for watching thing at 1080p60fps or higher and 1 game wich is minecraft since i mostly game on console 

and for my movies and i like macbook for me it looks amazing quality looks sharp

for what he needs it won't make a different even if one is i3 and one is i7 quad core he will watch movies and play minecraft

but if he want to run mods and use shaders then get a mbp maxed or xps maxed

if not get either a base xps or mbp 13"
