Here are two options depending on your budget.

$550 = Acer Aspire 5 with quad core i5-8250u, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, 1080p screen and nViidia mx150 dedicated graphics. Capable of playing Sims 4 at 1080p with max graphics settings without any issues. The SSD makes the laptop very responsive because of faster read / write speeds compared to a hard drive.

$437 = Acer Aspire 3 with dual core i5-7200u, 6GB of RAM, 1TB hard drive, 1080p screen and integrated Intel HD 620 graphics. This should be good enough to play the Sims 4 at 1080p with medium settings and good performance.

I have an old laptop that I keep around with an i5-2410m with the Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics core, it also has a dedicated nVidia GT 550m GPU. Based on the performance of the Intel HD 3000 I would not bother attempting to play games with it.

If you do not mind buying a used laptop then you get a laptop with a 5th generation Core i3-5005u (2.0GHz) with the Intel HD 5500 integrated graphics and 8GB of RAM. The Intel HD 5500 will perform a lot better than the older Intel HD 3000 found in 2nd gen Intel CPUs.

Lenovo Ideapad 305 - Purple = £282.47

Lenovo Ideapad 100 - Black = £296.10
