The following Acer has a Core i5-5200u CPU, 1080p resolution screen and a nVidia 940m which is good enough to play most games at 1366x768 / 1600x900 with low or medium graphic settings. So playing games on it would kinda be like a bonus. Recording video generally relies on the CPU. It costs $510.

A less expensive alternative would be the following Asus which has a Core i3-5010u and a 1080p screen for $350. It relies on integrated graphics and it is above the minimum requirements for the Elgato for recording purposes.

If he wants to stream video, then he will need a more expensive laptop with a quad core i7 CPU like the i7-6300HQ.
