Get MagicLauncher for that.
Easy to attach mods and you can change the amount of RAM Minecraft uses. I wouldn't suggest anything above 2GB though.
OptiFine is a great help too. Even I use it when I don't even have to.

I've tried using both and changing the settings to absolute low but I still get moderate amounts of lag. Like I said, my laptop is pretty shit. >_>

And closing other apps. Things like Chrome tend to resource hog when it's not active.

Of course. I closed everything before I started it up.

My OS is 64-bit, if that's what you mean.

Indeed. That's what I mean.

Well, try to look with IOBit Uninstaller which versions of Java is installed. If you still have Java 6 and all that jazz... Delete EVERYTHING of Java and re-install the latest 64bit you can find.

filehippo.com hosts always the latest version of Java. Maybe that can help. It helped for me a bit.

Updating and re-installing Java seems to have made it better, but the lag is still quite noticeable.

Press F3. Tell me your FPS.

I get with my old laptop a 5 - 30 FPS. So, that's kinda laggy but playable.

Anyways, you should try to mess with the settings of Optifine and allocate more memory to Java. And maybe try what Powy told, more priority to Java.

I get on average 30 FPS. That might be playable for you but it's not for me. =/

Even if I managed to make it playable for me after messing around with all kinds of settings, it's just not worth the effort. I'd rather buy Minecraft myself later on when I get a better PC (and preferably a better internet connection).

It's account bound, not computer bound. Pay once and you can play Minecraft everywhere the client is installed for life.

I got that, but again, I'd rather not pay (or have anyone else pay, for that matter) for something I know I probably won't use for a while.
