Ok, so I am looking to buy a new laptop (spoilers, I am not an expert) and I wanted to make sure I could play sims 3 on in before I got it. So can someone please check this computer out and tell me if it will run sims 3 smoothly? I had and old windows version before and it crashed every 30 min. Someone please help me!

Computer I am interested in:
“HP Pavilion Laptop PC Notebook, Intel Core i3-7100U, 8GB DDR4, 1TB HDD, 15.6" HD touchscreen, DVD-Writer, Card Reader, WIFI, Bluetooth, Windows 10”

I am willing to get a desktop also, but laptop would be more convienent. My budget is nothing above $520 American dollars.
 
Any of those will run it. All the ones you mentioned. But no one can guaranty that it won't crash the system. Especially if you use hacks, cheats, additional components, etc. Any program can crash any system if it isn't working correctly. In the end you will just have to choose and work from there.

I run my SIMS 3 on a desktop and it still crashes sometimes. I have a lot of stuff in there.
 
It should run it, even with expansions, however, it will get slower and slower, the more you add. So just just know ahead of time the more stuff you add to the game, the more worlds and households you have going, the slower it will run.
