I am looking for a laptop. I would like it to play Sims 3 with no lag, on high graphics plus I want it to do all other computer things too (search the internet, play music, write paper, etc.). Right now I have a found a computer. The specs are below. Please give your opinion (without to much tech talk cause I am new and not super advanced)!

Dell Inspiron 17R Laptop | AMD A10
Brand: Dell
Graphic Card: AMD Radeon HD 8610G
Hard Drive Size: 1 TB
Operating System: Windows 8
Optical Drive: DVD-RW
Processor: AMD A10
RAM Included: 8 GB
Screen Size: 17.3 in.

Please comment! There is also a link (I am buying the laptop of the Costco website) if that helps.

Yep, that should be able to max The Sims 3 no problem. If it was me, I'd want a higher resolution screen, but that's up to you, and may be significantly more expensive.
