What computer do I need to play Fortnite?

Episode 1534 (1:41:35)

Jack from West Monroe, LA
Raspberry Pi

Jack's ten year old is a budding geek. What should he get him? Leo says the Raspberry Pi computer would be a great project for him, and he can even use it to play Minecraft for around $35.

Jack's kid is obsessed with Fortnite, though, so he needs a computer to play it. Leo says that he can get a low cost laptop that should be able to play Fortnite. It has pretty low performance requirements. His best bet is an inexpensive Windows computer. It can even run on a low end Core i3 processor, but Leo recommends the i5. It should have 8GB of RAM, and a low end Nvidia video card.
