11-03-2009, 09:10 PM #1How do I tell if my laptop has the system requirements for Sims 3?
I know I need to update to Leopard, but I don't know what else I need to do to make sure it runs well on my laptop.
I have a 13" White Macbook I got in June 2007. It was the very basic Macbook (the cheapest one they sold at that time, about $1100 if that helps).
Here are the reqirements for the Sims 3 (a lot of it sounds gibberish to me!):
* Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard or higher
* Intel Core Duo Processor
* 2 GB RAM
* ATI X1600 or Nvidia 7300 GT with 128 MB of Video RAM, or Intel Integrated GMA X3100.
* At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
* This game will not run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Mac systems, or the GMA 950 class of integrated video cards.
Also, is this in the right thread? I hope so!

Your MacBook will not play Sims 3. If you had picked one up in November, you could, but your graphics card can't support the Sims3.Blog and Photo Gallery: http://philolin.me/
Currently running OS X 10.10

As far as finding the answers to some of those specifications yourself; click on the Desktop then choose About this Mac from the :Apple: Menu. Then from Go, select Utilities and open System Profiler.
