Happy New Year to you too!! Responding to your question on my wall and the Laptop Vs Desktop hardware. Laptop hardware being weaker than desktop hardware and will they ever create laptop hardware equal to desktop hardware ? Who knows what the future holds. They are making laptops more powerful these days though they are still not as powerful as desktop gaming hardware yet. Games are also getting more and more demanding on hardware requirements. The requirements are always desktop hardware and I don't see that changing anytime soon. They make powerful enough laptops at this point to run the sims games however if someone heavy games with much higher requirements, desktop is the best way to go.
