Hi, I'm thinking of getting a new laptop as my current dell laptop is appox 4 years old and overheats and runs slow etc..

I'm currently looking at this....

I don't really want to spend over £400 and other than the sims I just need it for basic needs. Or if anyone could recommend any others. Thanks :)
Yes it should work fine although i would recommend a cheap old $50 graphics card. The sims 3 doesn't need much to run smooth and im sure your integrated graphics will run it ok.
