I'm looking to buy a laptop that could stream Xbox one games on it without any difficulties. I really don't know which one to get. Any suggestions? My Internet at home is really good + I plan on connecting the Xbox one via network cable so that it can have the best possible connection. Budget wise , I'm looking for something around 400-600 $Canadian.
Thanks!

Considering the Xbox One will be doing all the computational stuff, the computer probably doesn't need to be that fancy at all. Microsoft's documentation says they recommend a computer with at least 2 GB of RAM and a 1.5 GHz CPU or faster.

Thanks for the reply! What about the processor?
Do you think a Lenovo yoga book would work?? The version with windows

Intel® Atom™ x5-Z8550 Processor(2M Cache, Quad-Core, Up to 2.4 GHz) these are the processor specs

A CPU and a processor are the same thing. Microsoft said they recommend at least a 1.5 GHz CPU/processor. It seems like the Lenovo Yoga Book theoretically meets that recommendation. I'm not sure how good an Intel Atom processor is though compared to an Intel Core i3 or something like that.

Thanks for the info! I saw videos about the yoga book & they say it isn't meant for software like photo editing... I don't know how demanding photo editing can be but I think that video steaming might be more demanding.. It's not clear . I'm surprised there aren't any YouTube videos about "recommended laptops for Xbox one streaming" normally there are loads of videos about top tens of whatever's on YouTube
