I just tested these laptops with Uni, NL, OfB and Pets installed.

They do NOT have functions for those EPs. And if they don't have functions for those EPs, I doubt they have funtions for any other EPs.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to update these computers. I hope somebody can, though, since these are really well done and your recolors are lovely.

Oh yeah, you should probably update your description.

In the picture of the "Acrobat" set you'll find a vaio laptop... Unfortunately if you try to download, you'll be redirected to

It seems that most of Simcredible's older creations are only available there...what a pity
I'd have loved to get these for my Simmies, too.

By the way for all of you who were wondering about the new ep actions:

That's a tutorial how to update computers on your own. With that guidance even I managed to do it (without any SimPE-experience!) and it works fine!

I hope that was helpful. Cheers.

i have that laptop in real life im actually using it right NOW!!!:D

I am also not able to download the mesh for this I also have a black HP labtop in real life andso these labtops would be perfect! (:
But your mesh link does not work (I found it by removing the "10" as in study10 at the end of the url, but it's not working/cant download the mesh from the site.

Not sure what's up with that, or what exactly you can even do about the original mesh site not working properly, but thought I'd let ya know.

Is there even any way to get this mesh anymore? It seems like it is an older one from the site and no longer available to download. (Does anyone know of a way to find it?)

People u can download the mesh but it's tricky xD
So do as I did o.o
Or not, or whatever xD I'll give the hint in the same, for those who really want these mesh ... So I did it like this:
Go to the link
Than on the ACROBAT set, it says Dowload set, click on it ...
You will be directed to a page on yahoo introducing the page and bla bla bla .. Ignore it and click where it says: Join Group ...
Make a yahoo acount if you don't have one, than refresh the page or something, and click on the join group thingy and log on ur acc, if ur not logged on .. Do the 3steps it tells you to join the simcredible group wich is really simple, than once u finally joined, and get re-directed to the page or wvr, on the left side you have something saying: Files .. Click it than go to Studys, search for the Acrobat set, click than look for the laptop mesh and download and tcharaaaan 8D Ur done <_<
I hope this helped =3 And I hope I didn't cummited any elegality here O_o
If you need help just reply or somethin 8D
Anyways, to jsamonte, thank you very much for these awesome recolours :3
I really love them ^^
