FAQ for Fortnite Laptops

What are the alternatives to playing Fortnite on a laptop?

You can play Fortnite on most platforms: PC, Mac, PlayStation and Xbox One. If all you want to do is play Fortnite, it might be cheaper to go with one of the other platforms to play.

Should I play Fortnite on a laptop or PC?

A PC is generally more powerful than a laptop. They also don't get over-heated quite as quickly as laptops due to the components being designed not to fit inside a tight space. That being said, a laptop can play Fortnite quite well if it has some of the best hardware. If you're on a cheaper budget, a computer may be better for you since a cheaper computer will run Fortnite better than a cheaper laptop. Check out the Best Computers for Fortnite page to see what you can get for your money.

hello there, so this is all grand the very very expensive laptops required for the very best fornite laptop experience, but, i have another question. What about the average income person, whom only has a $400 ACER regular laptop. I have fortnite, it works just NOT WELL. I wonder if you might be able to share some different settings for us that cannot afford the giant overpriced laptop or desk top fortnite experience??? Many thanks!

@jeanine What are the current specs of your laptop? At $400, you could just buy a PS4 and play it on there if platform choice isn't an issue. Fortnite is a new game and their recommended specs do ask for a GPU card; when you're using a laptop versus a desktop, you're going to need even more processing power because laptop GPU's are not as powerful in some cases.

I don't know what are the best settings for Fortnite in terms of lowering graphical quality; you'll just have to play around with it. Good luck!

@aiden Hascher That laptop would have to run the game on the very lowest of settings in order to run it. You want something with a bit more ram and perhaps a better CPU.

I hope someone can help me here
Im playing fortnite now on my laptop asus a455l in super low settings, sometimes it run smoothly but sometimes it also stutter badly especially when i play in squad and more than 5 people fighting or when the building fight is a bit tough
Im thinking of upgrading my laptop ram to 8gb, would it get better? Im not planning to buy a new laptop since im saving my money for something else and buying a new laptop will cost me more than upgrading it, sorry for my broken english and thank you for whoever kindly answer my question

@Trinity Honestly it doesn't sound like a good enough computer. That CPU is really slow and quite old so I don't think Fortnite would run well on it.

@GG It should run well enough with that graphics card. I would expect at least medium settings, but I'm not 100% sure.The GTX 1050 is a good graphics card.

Do you think the game will run well?

@idk It'll run it on low-to medium settings. The processor speed (1.6) is quite slow for Fortnite but it is the latest generation so it's very optimized. I haven't used an i5 processor to run fortnite. If I'm using an I5 I would try and get a dedicated graphics card.
