Does the Sims 3 work on 2015 13-In MacBook Pro with Retina Display?[Mac]

Backstory) My laptop is pretty much a piece of poop and I have been Really wanting to play The Sims 3 on it, but my computer has taken a beating. I want to save money up for a laptop 2015 13-In MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I just don't want to buy one and have it end up not working for me. What are the changes of the The Sims 3 working on one? Is there another computer that cost less then the 2015 13-In MacBook Pro with Retina Display that will run the Sims great? I've watch god knows how many videos of people playing the Sims on the 2015 13-In MacBook Pro with Retina Display.I see all good stuff then there the one person who says it doesn't work then I get let down. I just REALLY need to know so I don't go crazy.....Wait I'm already crazy. I wan't to be able to have stuff packs and expansion on it to. I own all my Sims games on disk so I would have to buy them off of Origin to download them on to the Macbook. I put a lot of detail into this because I really don't know what I am doing. I put all the games down that I want/ might want. Will it hold all those? What should I do? Is there a better Macbook that would work better?

Please read the stickied thread on this forum specifically related to post 2013 Macs and then make up your mind - http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/Mac-Issues-playing-on-newer-post-2013-Macs/m-p/4935394#U4935394

 

In short, the game is not compatible on newer Macs due to the graphics cards not being supported, especially Intel integrated which the 2015 13" MacBook Pro has.



Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
