What you should do is look at the spec of the sims 3 (Google it) and take that as the minimum you need. I would recommend at least a a 2Ghz Dual Core and 3 GB of RAM to run those. You'll also need an OK graphics card built in to handle it - Again the specs are on the website.

I'm looking into a laptop for my girlfriend and thus far have found a nice Tosh on Amazon for £500 - I refuse to get her anything but a Tosh since they seem to be the most reliable machines out there at the moment. If you're not fussy on the brand though you could pick one up cheaper.

I would say any new laptop is capable of doing everything you have listed.

dell studio with a 4570 gfx will do the trick

Thanks for all your help laptops looking a bit pricey might get a stack for her instead

What? The Sims 3 will not run satisfactorily on a £300 Celeron with Intel Integrated Graphics. Unless satisfactory for you is a slideshow
