Hello PianoChick,

My advised to you is: Each time you want to buy a computer or hardware always make a choice depend your budget. And tell people about your budget. It'll make easier for people to suggest best bang for buck stuff Smile

Hi there,

Woah, it's not hard to find something good for that budget, I guess.
So, are you really looking for a laptop? Not a desktop computer?

Hello,

If you have a local PC store, you should ask them there. Usually they do have such service.

What is the major usage for the laptop? What kind of task you're going to do with the laptop?

Gaming? watching movie? Doing office task ?

I'll mainly use it for sims 3 and movies, uni assignments and such, so I need a desktop/laptop that can do everything I need it to do

Hello,

Ok, so you don't need a very expensive PC.

Hello,

The best? If you want to be prepared for the future, go for i7 processor second generation.
Though, those are pretty expensive for your purposes, so I recommend an i5.

Actually, you cannot noticed any different between i5 and i7 unless if you doing multitasking. The fast that you're mentioning can be upgrade by changing the existing HDD to SSD. Google about SSD.

Hello,

However, SSD's are pretty expensive. If you go for a PC, one SSD and a HDD should be OK. (Install the OS on the SSD for best result)
Though, if you want to get a laptop, SSD is going to be hard...

Yes SSD is pretty expensive. I can get 1 TB HDD for RM 170 but SSD for 3rd Gen I need pay about RM 900 for 120 GB Smile

Hehe.... Some laptop come with dual HDD now Smile Like alienware

Uh, I'd reccommend i7 on a laptop personally, I don't do much multitasking but I often find I'm using 4 or 8 threads with hefty programs...I think in the future it'll become more and more common for programs to use lots of threads. And for Sims 3, any i series laptop with any dedicated graphics card should be fine, even shared would probably be okay!
