Def. agree with Luke and Rena. I tried Sims once on my mid 2014 Macbook Pro and it made it run so, so, so hot and the graphics quality was awful. Mac is made best for photo editing via Photoshop and every day, normal tasks. You'd think for $1,300+ for a brand new one that it would be able to handle gaming. While I love Apple products and swear by them for most things, Windows is the way to go for gaming. I highly, highly recommend MSI brand computers for anyone in the market for a solid gaming laptop. I've had mine since 2016 and it still runs brand new and I have my Sims settings on max for just about everything and also have ultra settings for Assassin's Creed Odyssey which is a MASSIVE open world game. Like 43gb of harddrive space massive.
For reference, I have an MSI Apache Pro GE62 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M graphics card, 1TB hard drive with an additional 128gb Solid State Drive that runs at 7200 RPM on Windows 10. The main harddrive has two 8gb memory cards and dedicated heat piping with an extra set of fans that can be turned on with a button. The piping helps keep heat away from the motherboard and other vital structures. It's a beautiful machine...best part is the rainbow backlit keyboard that I am able to customize, LOL. I'm hoping that one of these days I'm able to build up my own gaming tower for like, smack in the face amazing graphics. Like the graphics on my laptop right now are pretty freaking amazing and I can't complain at all...but with towers you're able to continually upgrade them and change things around.
