    Currently i have an acer aspire 3003wlci laptop with 1gb ram and integrated graphics and im thinking about selling it and getting a laptop that will run the sims on high detail without the people skipping around the house like my current laptop does. Could anyone recommend a better laptop under $900 that will work. Or if someone could tell me how upgrade my laptop to run the sims better.

    Thanks

    You would be looking at about 3x the amount you are willing to pay there. and even then there is no guarrantee that it will work. The problem is with the graphics that is intergrated. It's never a good one to play games on. That's why most laptops are not recommended for gaming. There was one that was in PC Magazine some time back that was 'the first gaming laptop' but the price was in the $3K range. It was either a Dell or Alienware.

    As for upgrading, most laptops are all intergrated and not upgradable in the video department. I have seen only one brand name that has a laptop that is upgradable and that was a Dell (of all brands)
