    Sims 4 recommended requirements (the important bits:
    Processor: Intel core i5 or faster, AMD Athlon X4
    Memory (RAM): 4 GB RAM
    NVIDIA GTX 650 or better

    Easily achievable in even a cheap laptop. Avoid one with a mechanical HD, these days they have uses... just not as the primary drive.

    You might also need an external DVD drive, if The Sims is unavailable in download. (Most laptops DON'T have a DVD drive these days)

    Sims 4 was a 2014 release. Translate that i5 into current kit and you're probably at an i3 or perhaps even lower.

    Sorry. Just come across this thread.
    To be honest, I wouldn't touch Curry's with a ten foot barge pole.
    Just my four penn'orth!

    I fully agree.. Currys/PCWorld not only sell garbage (if you know anything about specs) but their aftersales service falls WAY short of the mark..
