Although the processor is only is only 1.6 GHz Pentium (so I assume that it is Pentium 4) those 4 GB of RAM should help a lot and I don’t think that she will have any trouble at all to play Sims 3. I play Sims 2 in a Pentium 4 2,5 GHz and RAM 2,5 GB and works fine.

^ It’s a 2.6 Ghz proc @molona; , not a 1.6 Ghz :slight_smile:

I don’t recognize the type though. Maybe a new mobile line from Intel?
Definitely not a P4 though I’d say.

@ScallioXTX Where do you read 2.6?

I copy and paste:

  • Processor: 1.6 GHz Pentium
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Hard Drive: 750 GB 7200 rpm

500 TB SATA Hard Drive (7200RPM)
nice specs :smiley:

this thread is posted all over the internet…

See attachment (:

Hmpf, for a 500TB I’d expect it to rotate at at least 28.800 RPM :cool:

@ScallioXTX, so the specifications are in two different places… that’s kind of confusing. It is hard to know which are the real ones. I didn’t get to the bottom of the page because I saw the “more technical details” right under the first data and I clicked there.

Yes HD 4270 is a nice graphics card, you can run SIMS 3 smoothly.

SIMS 3 minimum requirements:

Note: the minimum requirements are just that–the bare minimum hardware that can run the game at its lowest settings.

I can’t say I have much faith in the HD 42xx, as it isn’t a very strong gaming card. But, the SIMS games haven’t typically needed the most powerful hardware available either.
