Question: What laptop do you suggest?
( Back )
Answer #1:I think if your don't want anything to hardcore but not to cruddy go to dell.ca look at home or buisness laptops and maybe check out the xps laptops like the xps 15 I'm not sure how expensive they are but check em out!
Answer #2:Dells are good but my votes goes to HP
Answer #3:Well definitely get a PC (not a mac). They have much better performance for the money.
Good PC laptop brands could be asus, toshiba, msi, maybe hp or dell, or acer. For what you want to do, I would get a laptop in the $700-$1000 range, maybe a little lower or higher depending on what performance you want.
Screen- 15 or 17". I like a bigger screen myself, but if portability and weight is a big issue, you could go for 15".
CPU (processor)- I would go for at least a duo core or quad core, but you probably wont need a quad core unless you are doing high-intensity apps like video editing. And i5 would be good, maybe i3 if budget doesn't allow the i5.
RAM (temp memory)- I would go for at least 4gb of ram. You can go to 6 or 8 if you want, but above that you won't really notice that much of a difference performance wise.
Hard drive- Depends on how much you want to store. 500gb or more should be fine for you, unless you want a lot of music and videos, then aim 750+.
Graphics card- This is mostly for gaming or video editing. Sims 3 isn't a very demanding game, so you shouldn't need a dedicated graphics card, unless you want to play more intense games. (FYI- If a laptop says Intel graphics 4000 or something like that, it has integrated graphics. What that means is the graphics portion is already attached to the processor. Some computers have a dedicated card separate from the processor, because they need the extra power).
These are pretty much the major components that you look for in a computer. I decided to give you a mini-lesson above, since people need to know this stuff when they are shopping for computers. Of course, if you want a more in-depth look you can always look up more online.
Last thing~ a good site for computer shopping is newegg.com. You can enter your criteria and compare prices and specs and what not. Good luck!
