This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
EDIT: Fixed the inventory issue, & should now be fully portable! Please Redownload.

Hi Guys!

Back with my 1st upload of 2020!

Today Schmapple brings you the Best New Laptop On The Market! (The most expensive too!)

I liked the look of the new laptop we got, but I hated the ugly gray strip under the screen & how the rest of it lacked detail, so I decided to overhaul & rebrand it to it's full potential.

I resized the textures to be HQ, added a camera lens, & increased the overall metallic shine.

This item uses the "Free-Roam Portable Computing Device" Laptop, & is BGC (Base Game Compatible).

Comes in 35 colors, plus 3 new metallic ones! Only the colorless swatches come in all 5 LED colors, (with the exception of the Red & Blue swatches.)

Can be found under "Electronics" in the Computer area.

Cost: 5,250 Simoleons.

Tuning Upgrades

"Fun": +9 (From +7)
"Reliability": +8 (From +6)


Bonus

I thought the "X" wallpaper would look good as art, so I threw that in there as well.

Can be found under "Decorative/Wall Objects" in the Paintings area.

Cost: 315 Simoleons.

Enjoy!

Thank you for this great - but cheap - laptop. And many, many further thanks for the multitude of colours! It's really perfect!

Thanks! The whole project (including pics), took a few months, but finally got it done. Also, It's cheaper than the high-end desktops, but it's the most expensive Laptop in game.
The specs are also the highest.

I happen to like this laptop a lot, my only problem for it is that it can't be placed inside a sim's inventory, plus the "Put in Inventory" interaction doesn't appear on the object.

Check out my Patreon, I feature Artwork and Short Stories and Bio's about my own Personal Multiverse, as well as some CC I'll share for early release (nothing major right now though, Mainly just recategorized Maxis Content).

I like the colors, but I can't have my sims corrupted by using Apple's computers. Also I too would want the inventory option. If you make a generic brand with the inventory option it would be the bomb!

Nice colors!

I really appreciate the 1984 Macintosh option. Dad still has his Mac somewhere (he'd love to turn it into a Macquarium) and was a dealer, so he's got the dealer sign/lamp in his home office. I've got an '84 Mac case for my iPhone.

Oh, this was my 1st time tuning & I used the tuning from a desktop to change the motives, & I think it changed the inventory option as well... Sorry about that. Thanks for the heads up. I'll update Asap!

Lol thanks. I might make a version of the Discover University laptop, in all the colors (since it didn't come with any)...

Tried this out in my test save tonight, very nice! (Also, I saw what you did there with the pun! Yes, I realize "Schmapple" is already an in-game appliance brand...but who knew they made laptops, too? )

Hi. I downloaded this today and I can't place it on any table. It gives me an error message "Must be placed on specific objects.". I am using a computer table. I also already tried it on several different tables but didn't work. I also tried using "bb.moveobjects on" cheat, but still can't place it. help

Dang, did one of the recent patches break it? Thanks for the heads up!
