Laptop Purchase under 600 dollars

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
This may a challenge to find but i hope someone can assist me.
I am looking for a CHEAP Notebook PC that can run the sims 3 for my wife.
I would like the notebook to have a dedicated video card if possible.

She is currently playing on my old dell laptop back from 2004.
the dell laptop runs windows xp with 2 gig of ram and a Dedicated gforce 6600 GO. the system currently runs her game fine. However its a old system and its time for it to be replaced.
the Screen must be no smaller then 15.6 wide screen.

I picked up a Cheap Lenova from best buy with intergrated graphics and she sad it ran the game choppy and that old one ran it better therefore i will return it.
it had a intergrated radeon 4400

This one is a $620, but it has a nice quad for the price so I figured I'd let you know about it too.
