    That thing will do what you need with no problem right out of the box. The big factor for video editing and playing Sims 2 is to have a dedicated graphics card, which that already has. It has 128mb of dedicated graphics memory, which isn't out of this world but it is definitely sufficient for video editing and smooth graphics simulation in Sims 2. I had a Dell laptop with only 64mb of dedicated video memory and even that played Sims 2 just fine. I'd say go for it if it's in your price range, I don't think you'll be sorry.

    You for sure do no longer understand what you're conversing approximately. laptop capacity pc. Apple desktops are very own desktops, are not they? No? Then tell me what they're, please. A " laptop " will possibly in no way final as long? it style of feels to me you think of that Apple makes use of magical hardware or something. It would not. or in line with possibility you think of the OS is stronger? each and every thing has that's issues, even no rely if that's in keeping with BSD, yet I guess you probably did no longer even understand that. I actually have a Dell from 2001 that works wonderful. Apple desktops do no longer use magical hardware that in no way breaks, please understand that. that's laptop illiterate people who won't be able to make desktops final.

    That is a pretty good pc for the price, more ram would be nice but for that price I would definetly go for it. As for video it should have it in it. On the back of the sims box it tells you what kind you need or better just in case that pc doesn't have one.

    you can find a much better one for cheaper on ebay or craigslist.

    Or you can get a Laptop which will be much better for you.
