I've been looking at some laptops recently and while most of the ones I've had my eye on look decent enough to me I'm not 100% sure about them running the Sims properly. I don't mind if the graphics will be perfect, just as long as there's not too much slowness (I have lots of CC and some expansion packs) and it'll run on at least medium settings. I've been looking at fairly cheap laptops, so if there are any other laptops that are less than $400 then feel free to suggest them.

Here are some laptops I've been considering:

My choices would be the Elitebook - the highest spec, has an i5 processor, easily upgraded. Not designed for gaming but should be able to manage The Sims. Also has 8GB ram which will help. I'd recommend getting it upgraded with an SSD for best performance. I had Sims 3 on a Macbook with an i5 processor and 8GB Ram with an intel integrated HD graphics card and it generally ran really well.

The others all have AMD Radeon processors & graphics, which won't be as good, and I know from experience that the trackpads on lower HPs and Dells can be absolutely dreadful to use.
