    Hi,
    I'm looking for a new notebook and I KNOW that they are not suitable for gaming. However, I would like to play sims 4 on it as well as some older bioware games. So I want to buy a notebook that can deal with this.What specifications would you recommend? I don't need to play on Ultra btw.

    Welcome :).

    Which old Bioware games are you intending to play? The Sims 4 should run on almost any new laptop (apart from very low end netbooks) - even ones with integrated Intel/AMD GPUs. Depending on which Bioware game you want to run, it may also work fine on pretty much any modern laptop.

    Just Dragon Age 1&2 and Mass Effect 1-3. Thanks so much for your reply and I'm sorry I'm so late, I didn't see that someone had replied.

    It may be worth taking a look at some laptops you like, then compare the GPU here:

    It'll give you a clue how it performs. Almost any new laptop should be able to run those games, except for Dragon Age II, which you'll need to double check the min specs :).

    Aim for a minimum of 4GB ram and an SSD. Having an SSD will make a huge difference to the speed and battery life of your laptop :).
