Go to the store and look at Minecraft's box, or go to its website, and check the stated Requirements. That will tell you what the authors think the machine needs in order to deliver minimum acceptable playability.

Then check those specs against those of the netbook.

I don't know whether netbooks have graphic accelerators. If they don't, there are a lot of games they aren't going to be able to keep up with.

Netbooks tend to be underpowered by today's standards, since they aren't intended to be anyone's primary machine and are more concerned about portability and battery life than performance. Good luck.

Who knows? The best way I know to find out is to download a copy of the free demo and try it. Then burn to a disk and take to the store and and test it on the store's display models. See if one of them works.

Best (=cheapest) answer is to try it.

If you're happy, fine. If you're not happy, then upgrade.
