What specs on a laptop for a kid?

Going to get a laptop for your school going kid? Here's what our technical experts suggest to look for.

I want to buy a laptop for my 12-year-old. He plays lots of online games like Minecraft & Roblox, as well as streaming YouTube videos (usually at the same time) He also needs the usual functions for school work. I don't know what specs I should be looking for. It is very confusing! What would you recommend for processor, RAM, and memory? I don't want to spend any more than I need to, on a machine for a kid.
