All she really does is play The Sims 3 and some lite browsing. Do you all think this laptop will work for her, and at what setting could it play the sims 3.

    Actually its pretty sad if a guy or anyone for that matter can't cook for themselves and expects a woman to do it!

    That will work.  The hard drive will be slow, but that's kind of what you get in that budget range.  It says it comes with 4 GB of memory, but doesn't specify whether it's two 2 GB modules or one 4 GB module.  If the latter, you'd have to add another 4 GB module to make it perform properly.

    I don't know how high of settings it would run Sims 3 at, but the official system requirements say that even Intel GMA 3 series graphics should work, and Radeon HD 6620G is easily an order of magnitude faster than that.

    I would ask if she really needs a laptop.  If she's going to take it out of the house and travel with it, then have at it.  But if she's going to use a desktop, then you'd be better off getting a desktop.
