Re: Best Cheapest Laptop For Sims 4

I love the Sims series. In fact a Sims game was the first game ever purchased. Fortunately the hardware requirements for Sims 4 are pretty low, but in your budget range you can get one that should run it fairly well.

 

Dell Insprion may be a good option for you. Dell makes a good solid machine.

 

 

I like to suggest the possibility of a Best Buy Credit card. I got one becuae I could not afford the computer I wanted.  Howver, I got the card because they offered 12 months interest free financing and I was able to pay it off in 4 month.

Re: Best Cheapest Laptop For Sims 4

Hi, jada_lcm! 

 

bobberuchi nailed it and I highly recommend looking over his reply. I just wanted to jump in and provide the recommended system specs for The Sims 4 to help during your shopping experience. 

 

  • Operating system: 64 Bit Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10
  • Processor: Intel core i5 or faster, AMD Athlon X4
  • Memory (RAM): 4 GB RAM
  • Hard drive (free space): At least 18 GB of free space.
  • DVD drive: DVD-ROM drive required for installation from disc only
  • Graphics card (video): NVIDIA GTX 650 or better
  • Direct X version: DirectX 9.0c Compatible

Here's the minimum system specs as well: 

  • Processor: 1.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, AMD Athlon 64 Dual-Core 4000+ or equivalent (For computers using built-in graphics chipsets, the game requires 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.0 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-62 or equivalent)
  • Memory (RAM): At least 4 GB RAM
  • Hard drive (free space): At least 15 GB of free space with at least 1 GB additional space for custom content and saved games.
  • DVD drive: DVD-ROM drive required for installation from disc only
  • Graphics card (video): 128 MB of Video RAM and support for Pixel Shader 3.0
    • Supported Graphics cards: NVIDIA GeForce 6600 or better, ATI Radeon X1300 or better, Intel GMA X4500 or better

For example, the previously mentioned Dell laptop meets all these minimum requirements (and then some). If you wanted to get even closer to the recommended specs, you may enjoy something like this HP laptop.
