I am wanting to buy a Lap Top that will play the Sims 2. I am wanting to know what kind of Lap Top will hold this game. I am looking to spend 1,000 or less.
Thank you

The following is The Sims 2 system requirements:

If you have a T&L capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM then you need at least:

800 MHz processor or better
256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98 or Windows 2000
At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

If you have a non-T&L capable video card (an Intel Extreme Graphics or a Radeon 7000/VE Series) then you need at least:

2.0 GHz processor or better
256 MB RAM if Windows XP, Windows ME, Windows 98, or Windows 2000
At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

Get the most current driver for your video card. The manufacturers usually have the video drivers on their sites for you to download. Visit the nVidia site, the ATI site or the support site for your computer's manufacturer for the latest drivers for those video cards.

Hello Kate_marie and welcome to G2G!

Laptops are not recommended by developers or publishers to play games on.
If your still wanting to buy a laptop make sure that it doesn't have Intel integrated graphics

You will need to look at the high-end laptops AKA as the ones that cost an arm and a leg. I very much doubt you'll find it for under 1000 <insert appropriate currency symbol here>.
