Question: Will Sims2 work with my 149GB HP 530 laptop?

I'm afraid to try it, so I thought I'd ask. Also, do you think that Sims3 will work on it in the future (even if I have to uninstall Sims2)?

Also, please don't just say yes. I'm not going to never buy HP products if it doesn't work, I just want an honest and real answer. I will also survive if it doesn't work, but I'd like to know what I'm getting into first.
