Good idea to shop around, the price of RAM has come down a lot recently

Also DDR2 ram isn't that bad, It may have that type of ram but still it is a very good laptop, Its better than my current laptop that struggles to open webpages that heavily rely on flash player and things like that..

I emailed yesterday and am waiting to hear back, Otherwise I will buy a $15 one off eBay with free post and just rip the key I need off there, I don't need a whole new keyboard just a space bar key..

So today I rang up and I was told that I have to buy a whole new keyboard as they won't give me a single key, eBay here I come!!

I wouldn't say it would do great with sims 3 especially if you have all of the expansion packs.

The new laptop though is better except, as everyone else has said, Vista
