should i install the sims 3 on my mac or will it make it slow ?

annalise253,
installing a legitimately purchased game on your Mac should not make it slow unless its internal disk is critically low on free space. If installing the game does slow it down when the game isn’t being played, you could uninstall the game. Installing a game of uncertain provenance could have side effects, depending upon how the game has been modified.

    Hey there,
    As long as you purchase the Mac Version, everything should work great. I recently purchased the game, and have had no problems with it whatsoever. So go ahead and purchase it and have fun. Best of luck!

    You have to ask that?   Because the more plugins you add to a browser the more likely something is going to clash, or simply slow down the the whole thing, particularly if it is a plugin designed for newer model computers.  As Niel said, if you don't need it then don't install it.

  • HT1338 I have HP LaserJet 200 colorMFP M276nw and trying to install the driver on my mac pro; it gives me the error message that the driver is not available.

    Hi,
    I have HP LaserJet 200 colorMFP M276nw and trying to install the driver on my mac pro; it gives me the error message that the driver is not available.

    Typically this is caused by the internal list of compatible devices in the Mac being out of date.  All you should need to do is disconnect the printer from the Mac, run Apple Software Update (even if there are no updates, the list will still update), restart the Mac, connect the printer to the Mac, and add the print queue.  If that doesn't work, let me know.

  • PROBLEMS INSTALLING THE SIMS ON MACBOOK

    I have tried installing The Sims the mac version on my macbook several times. Usually it says error-36, unable to complete installation.
    I was not sure if the ownership settings on user data was the problem, since they are set for read only to everyone and staff, but for me it says read and write. I am not sure what the problem is. Help?

    when i bought the game from the apple store the guy said he had the same game and he got it to work on his macbook.
    I'd suggest you go back to the Apple Store and ask that guy how he got it to work. I won't say it's impossible, but Aspyr won't support it and all I can find via a web search are people who've had the same or similar problems with no solutions posted. Unless someone else here knows of a workaround, you may be out of luck.
    do you think i could still get my money back if i don't have the receipt and it has been more than 3 months?
    No, I think that it will be impossible by this time to get your money back. Very few retailers will allow returns on opened software at all and after three months I know of none who would take it back, particularly without the receipt.

  • I am having trouble installing the Sims 3 on my macbook pro.

    When I try to install the Sims 3 base game, the installer comes up as it should... but when I try to proceed a message comes up saying the power pc application is no longer supported. My macbook runs on the OS x mavericks operating system, does this system not support the Sims? Someone help please!

    Either the installer or the game, or both, are written for Apple's pre-Intel machines. If I were you, I would contact Electronic Arts and see if there is an update to the version that you have.

  • Should I install the 10.7.3 combo update?

    Hi,
    I've just read many reports of users experiencing problems with OS X Lion 10.7.3 when installed from the software update. I successfully updated 5 Macs using this method (hence not from the combo update).
    Should I install the combo update on top of my working 10.7.3 systems or should I just leave them as is?
    Is Apple going to release some kind of patch in order to "unify" all 10.7.3 versions? (there was the original combo then a new combo and the delta update available from software update). If I understand correctly there were at least 2 differents builds of 10.7.3 that were made available to the general public.
    Thanks.

    My question as well......see my post.

  • Should I install the Kaspersky Internet Security Software included with the purchase of a new MacBook Air, OS X.

    Should I install the Kaspersky Internet Software included free with the purchase of a new MacBook Air OS X?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    You mustn't. Apart from the fact that OS X doesn't need an antivirus (OS X has got its own security systems), commercial antiviruses like Kaspersky can do more harm than something good for your Mac. See > http://www.reedcorner.net/mmg
    If you want to install an antivirus, install Sophos or ClamXav

  • Installing the Sims 3 on MacBook Air.

    I tried to install the sims 3 on my new MacBook Air 11", but it keeps getting stuck with 7 minutes left, 486 of 517 files left to copy. I chose the proposed HDD.
    Do you know any solution?
    Thx

    I would refer to the EA Games site and review the minimum system requirements for the Sims 3. They recently launched Origin for Mac which I believe sells Sims 3. Good luck!
