Hi there!

This is my first time on these forums so please bare with me... I hope this post isnt in any violation of the rules, I did read through them.

Basically I am not too tech savvy and could really use someone who's experienced in these things and I dont have anyone to ask IRL, so this is how i ended up here.

I am looking into buying a new laptop and I've recently got into watching streaming videos (something I've never done before), and it inspired me to get into it and try do it myself. Entering this whole new area is a bit daunting so I would really appreciate some help if someone would be willing to give me some input.

I am not that into gaming and I don't play many games, mainly (pretty much 95%) of it, just The Sims 4. I have all the EPs, GPs and SPs. So that's to give an idea of what I will be working with.

I have done some research online and found a couple of laptops that are within my budget and (I think) would be good for me. If anyone could look into them or suggest a different one that would be better, I would be so grateful.

So long story short: a laptop that would allow me to play The Sims 4, stream and edit gameplay videos.

If I'm being unrealistic or if this is not something I can achieve within my budget or on a laptop in general (I do not want a desktop and like I said, I am clueless about all of this, so feel free to treat like a newbie cuz I am one), please feel free to say so.



To anyone reading this and taking the time to reply, I thank you so much in advance!

Cost/performance-wise, the Dell is the better option. It will meet your needs and for the least amount of money. I would place the HP (linked first) as the second choice. The third link seems broken and I wouldn't recommend the Lenovo.

i would recommend the helios 300 from acer. very good value and good thermals and display.
if its too pricey, go for a nitro 5 from acer. they are on the lower end of the spectrum. a nitro 5 on amazon with a 1050 ti goes for about 660$.

For SIMS 4, those laptops are too much, you can get something for must less money and still play SIMS 4 at high settings. This Lenovo with the Ryzen 7 CPU and onboard video will run SIMS 4 with no issues at all https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/lenovo-ideapad-330s-15-6-full-hd-laptop-ryzen7 The laptops you linked are for actual "gaming" as in more demanding games, not so much SIMS.
