I would like a laptop for the sims 3 and also for school and using the internet.

I would like if it was thin and light (it doesnt have to be)

I5-i7 processor

6-8 gb ram

Dedicated graphics and video

2.4 ghz +

I think that these are the sim requirements. I would like my laptop to meet the requirements (obviously lol)

What is your budget? The Sims 3 is pretty old now and the 4th generation i3/i5/i7 with standard cpu graphics should be more than enough to run it. Dedicated graphics will help with more modern games.

This one isn't too bad if you can find it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317541

 

I personally don't like the touch screen and you can change the options or look for something similar to that. That laptop should run most games even modern games fairly well. For certain the Sims 3 would run fine.

This is the one with the touchscreen: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834317541

 

It has 1TB of storage. It has more than enough storage for the average user unless you intend to store a ton of HD video on it. It will run everything you have mentioned quite easily.

Unfortunately I do not know if they do or not. You could try to add it to a cart and then use your shipping address. I have a feeling shipping costs will be pretty high.

You may also need to get a different power adapter or a US to Europe power adapter to use the laptop if you get it from the U.S. We use different power plugs here.
