Kai will be turning 12 in August, and this year he wants his own computer to play video games and of course do lots of homework in his room… During lockdown, Kai has spent a lot of time socialising and gaming with friends in Fortnite, Save the World and other online games. But this has been on his Dad’s Mac, which is not great for gaming, and he has to fight for access.
He’s interested in building his own, and would like help obtaining the different components.
He would love it if family and friends contributed towards the computer by “buying” a component or contributing towards one, instead of birthday presents.
We’ve identified the following parts.
