    For Letter D, I have a HP PAVILLION 650 and i have 1,000+ mods and it is starting to run super slow plus cities skylines just crashes. You think it will be able to handle 1,000-2,000 mods? I know nothing about computer specs i just want no lag! Very GOOD Video!

  4. Just A Random Frog On Your Lawn on February 8, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    Spent $200 on a computer that let me download, but not run sims 4. sOo I’m gonna see if I can see a different one

  5. Angelina G on February 8, 2021 at 9:05 pm

    reading these comments about how many people have macbooks for school but are looking to buy another laptop strictly for sims makes me feel so much better about wanting to do the same.

  6. Emily Sillett on February 8, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Can you play the sims 4 on just the laptop please answer I’m so confused thank you 🙏

  7. XXX DAVO on February 8, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Whoever watching this video please don’t buy the Gateway computer unless you are cool with playing sims 4 without mods unless you download a few

  8. Rolf Dew on February 8, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Are you from South Africa?

  9. Nefeli Sidiropoulou on February 8, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Can you please link the ultra graphics but lowest price one bc I can’t find the exact same one and Im afraid I will buy the wrong one

  10. Jade Stynes on February 8, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    I have no idea if my hp laptop can get sims but u know I’m sure I’ll be fine 😓

  11. SacconeJoly Fan on February 8, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Hi! I have been thinking about buying a new laptop. I would use it to do school work but also play the sims. I have found this laptop: Asus K550JX-DM274D i7/8GB/1TB/GTX950/Do. Is it good? I would like to play the sims on high or ultra settings. I don’t know much about computers so I would appreciate your help😊

  12. Mary Nguyen on February 8, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    which laptop do you recommend for someone who plays Sims 3 (high graphics and all expansions) , Sims 4 (high graphics with lots of cc’s and mods, and all expansions, some stuff/game packs) and some light gaming, like phasmophobia?

  13. Crystal Marie on February 8, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    A has not good reviews on Amazon, always check reviews.

  14. lifewith. r on February 8, 2021 at 9:10 pm

  15. Angie de la Rosa on February 8, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    WOW this was so helpful.💕 I’ve been looking for a new laptop for weeks. I love the sims and my little hp cannot handle it anymore💔 tysm for the info🙇‍♀️

  16. Astiana Alissia Lynn on February 8, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    The ZenBook Duo is goregous and geniussss!!! I’m honestly sold 😆🙌🏽🙌🏽

  17. Crazy Simmer on February 8, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    Thank you for the video! Super helpful! I have a very good gaming laptop that can handle the sims but the storage is so small.

  18. Kate Hoogendijk on February 8, 2021 at 9:16 pm

    Can you also download mods on the first one ? x I’m a lil late I know

  19. amelia violet on February 8, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    what category would the acer swift 3, wirh ryzen 5 4500u, be under?

  20. Why I on February 8, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Can I use asus n4020 pink to use on sims because I was thinking about getting it for my birthday but I don’t know if I can play sims on it 🙃

  21. Nichelle Owens on February 8, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I need a good laptop with a lot of space for the sims 4

  22. spongegod 666 on February 8, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I just want some cc lol

  23. Ash Nic on February 8, 2021 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you for this review. I have a question about the Acer Aspire. Is the review you did based on the dedicated or integrated graphics?

  24. RockyG O on February 8, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    laptop i am looking at is ACER Aspire 5 A514-52 14" Laptop – Intel® Core™ i5, 256 GB SSD, Silver. graphics are integrated, intel UHD 620 – would these graphics be good for gameplay?

  25. Malique Bennett on February 8, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Hi, I’m getting a lenvo for christmas and I think it is the ideapad 230 can I get sims 4 and cc please tell me I can that’s the only reason I bought it

  26. Midari Lida on February 8, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Hi OuiSims I wanna ask u if sims 4 just need a storage ( 16GB / 1TB ) or also needs a Graphic card? Thank u sm for making these helpful videos 😊

  27. Kodi Layne on February 8, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    does anyone know if the acer swift 3 can run the sims 4 bc i’m literally gonna cry if it can’t:(

  28. Ellie E on February 8, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Would you say the Acer Aspire 5 is a better option to the Acer Nitro 5? Also have you ever discussed the differences between the Intel i5 processor and AMD Ryzen 5? Do you have a preference? Final question… is it worth paying the extra £ to jump from 256gb ssd to 512? Your videos are soooo helpful. I’m in a Sims/laptop wormhole 😫🤣

  29. Sugar on February 8, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Hello! I have a question.
    Is Acer Aspire 5 better or the Lenovo IdealPad L340 i5 gaming laptop better?

  30. Ava Fernandez on February 8, 2021 at 9:31 pm

    you were very helpful, thank you!

  31. Violet Rae on February 8, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    would the laptops recommended be able to handle a good amount of cc as well???

  32. Allyspill on February 8, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    Will these be good for Sims 3?

  33. Taxs Tb on February 8, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    I want the one that coast 1499 but I AM POOR I’m crying in a college student tears

  34. Ashlee Marie on February 8, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I got the Acer aspire and I love it. Thank you so much for your recommendation 💖💖💖💖

  35. p ploodez on February 8, 2021 at 9:37 pm

    I really want the acer aspire 5, but on amazon it shows that it has the windows S mode in which you cant download anything outside of microsoft store. Some reviews were saying they had a lot of trouble removing the S mode and when they did the performance was worse.

  36. UNIVERSAL SENPAI on February 8, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Thank you this video is the most precise and helpful I’ve seen so far! The other videos were a bit confusing ^^”

  37. Reighan Ellis on February 8, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    thank you for this video🥺

    im thinking about getting the acer aspire 5 but dang it’s expensive and my mom won’t prob let me get that one but it’s the best possible choice because i want the mods and cc

  38. Boredom on February 8, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Hi, do you have any clue why the link to the acer aspire 5 went up? Is it out of stock or something? I’m trying to get the dedicated option which use to be 649$ , but the prices went up

  39. Privjoakimtl on February 8, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    I was thinking to buy the Asus Tuf a15, but it has windows 10 and windows 10 has DIRECTX 12. And many simmers say that the sims 4 on DIRECTX 12 is horrible. What should I do?

  40. Asad Ali on February 8, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    i brought the hp stream 14 inch 64 gb will it handle my laptop please let me knoe

  41. ChunkyChocolate on February 8, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Hi Ouisa! I really hop you reply because I need to purchase a computer for school and I also want to be able to play the sims 4 with all expansions and a few gb of cc and mods. I want it to be lightweight because it will be for school but I also want it to be able to play at medium/high graphics. I also want it to be under $1000. I’ve had my eye on this Dell:
    mostly because I heard it is technically a gaming laptop but does not look like one. Would this be good? And would I need to invest in a cooling pad or external fans?

  42. Analisia Garcia on February 8, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    HP Pavilion i5 GTX 1650 8GB/256GB Gaming Laptop what about this laptop? Do you think this could run the sims with packs and cc/mods?

  43. Paul Kofler on February 8, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    What laptop should I take if I want to play Sims 4 with good and high settings + cc and mods but also to make work and homework

  44. cyberbutterfly on February 8, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I bought a msi gaming laptop its 16gb ram and 512 ssd it runs the sims very good for me the loading times are under 3 minutes so no long loading times I currently have 5gb of cc still running decent I have all the expansions except showtime

  45. vanessa x on February 8, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    I’ve actually got a question if that’s alright with you.. I’m very interested in purchasing the Asus Vivobook S15 (CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 4700 / GPU: AMD Radeon Graphics / RAM: 16GB / 1TB SSD / 15.6" Display)

    Do you personally think that it would run The Sims 4 with some CC relatively smoothly on high settings? I’m also planning on buying some DLC in the near future.

    I’d be very interested in your opinion. Hope you have a great start to the new year. Fantastic video by the way.

  46. woozle on February 8, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    I’m going to buy the minimum one, my mum will allow me to get it for work without even knowing about the fact it can play on the sims! Thank you!

  47. Kamila Chalat on February 8, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    *****PLS HELP!!*****
    Im looking into buying the ACER ASPIRE 5 A515-54G 15.6INCH INTEL CORE i7 – 10510U , 8GB RAM, 1TB SSD, NVIDIA MX350, FULL HD DISPLAY, WINDOWS 10, would this be good??????

  48. Unknown Error879 on February 8, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Bruh, this game can run on a Ryzen 7 3700U easily on max graphics, who the hell thought it was a good idea to buy a gaming laptop to play this doo doo game.

  49. S Nic on February 8, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Hi! Thank you so much for your videos I have definitely subscribed!! I have a question. I live in Ireland so your purchase links don’t work for me.
    I want option C the Acer aspire 5 but can’t find that exact model in my country. I have found one similar model with 8gb ram however the SSD is only 256 GB rather than the 512GB on the one you recommend. Would this make a big difference to the running of the game?
    I play all of the expansion packs and would like to do this at the best settings. Thank you again!

  50. Anna Kaisa on February 8, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Thank you for this video it was very helpful!!☺️ I think i’ll be buying the asus tuf a15. Do you think i could also get sims 2 and sims 3 to run on that one?
