November 20 - It's Patch Day for The Sims 4 on PC/MAC. Patch notes here.

Laptop for Sims 2

This may sound like an off request haha and it probably is. So I am beginning to travel a lot to different countries and states. I already have a gaming pc but it’s a desktop. I wanted to know if anyone had any inexpensive recommendations for playing only the sims 2 and possibly 3 with all the expansions on a laptop. I say inexpensive because I spent a lot on my gaming pc and that consist of sims 4 3 & 2 with all expansions for each and other pc games. Please let me know! I leave for vacation in approx two weeks and would love to take it haha!

    You can play TS2 on pretty much any modern laptop. It'll be easier to get it working on Windows 7 though. The requirements for TS3 were rather steeper, I doubt that will play smoothly on a cheap laptop. Obviously, if you have the CD/DVD version, you'll need a laptop with a DVD drive, or an external USB one. A lot of modern laptops won't have that.

    Yes that is what I am finding but I was able to get the ultimate collection through Origin so I’m wondering if I really still need the disk drive. I found one around $600 and the other $700 but I am still unsure. I’m still doing a lot of research because I wanna play the sims when I travel haha sometimes I wonder if I should’ve just spend all the money on a gaming laptop.

    I bought this and it runs TS2-4 well (with a few graphical hiccups in Sims 2) for less than $600 last month at the last minute after my Dell laptop battery stopped charging all of a sudden:

    Anyone have any suggestions on a laptop that will play sims 2 disc version as EA have stopped giving out ultimate collection. The laptop I have has compatibility issues with sims 2.

    You're welcome. I honestly wasn't even looking at HP because of a previous battery issue (ironically) that HP refused to help me out with a few years ago but it's surprisingly held up since I am now using it for college and Sims. Sorry it took me so long to reply but college has kept me busy.

    I would honestly look for a laptop and an external CD drive since most laptops today don't have disk drives anymore. Or if you have the space for it, a desktop.
