Hi, I’ve got a old laptop that currently had my Origin account on there with my Sims 4 game & and all it’s expansion packs. Unfortunately the laptop is too slow so therefor no longer can use it to play the games.
I was just wondering if anybody knew of any affordable laptops that could run the Sims 4 & and the expansion packs well/smoothly etc?
Also, if I did get a new laptop.. to access my Sims games, would I just need to download the Origin app onto the laptop & log in etc and all my games will be on there? So I won’t need to buy them all again?!
Also looking for the affordable laptop to be available in the UK!
@SebDadamo What does "affordable" mean to you? As an example, £400 would get you a laptop with hardware that should be able to run all Sims 4 packs together on medium-high or high graphics settings:
I'd prefer the Acer because it has twice the storage, but it's not strictly necessary, just nice to have. A little more money would get you a small upgrade, but the next large leap in performance wouldn't come until you were looking at gaming laptops. Those generally start around £700 but can drop into the £650 range with sales.
Below the £400 mark, you're looking at low graphics settings, at least in new laptops. If you'd like to keep the price lower but are willing to consider a used laptop, that's also a reasonable choice, but used laptops from reputable sites are usually only about £50 cheaper than the new versions.
In any case, let me know your budget and any other details that matter to you, for example screen size, and I'll do a more thorough search.
As for your Sims 4 content, yes, you'll be able to download your owned content on your new computer for free. You'll need to manually transfer your saves and any other user content (in-game Library items, mods and custom content, screenshots), so don't get rid of your old laptop yet. But that's simple enough to do.
