Hi,

I'm looking to buy a new laptop that will run FM2011 as smoothly as possible. My budget is under 300 preferably, although there could be a small amount of manouevering...

I was looking at a couple of reconditioned laptops that were 250-300, they had 3 or 4GB ram, 160-250GB Hard Drive,which both seemed more than enough - but they had Intel graphics cards that were apparently not good enough as they did not specifically dedicate memory to them, or they internal, or something.

Could someone list the specs that a computer needs to run most leagues on a full database, with the 3d match engine?

I'm looking at the following, could someone please tell me if they'd be OK (and perhaps rank them)?

oh, and if the graphics card isn't great, can i still run the game smoothly (providing i've got a good processor) but just not use the 3D engine?

I wouldnt mind knowing this myself. Gave a reasoning on another post. FM11 demo works well on my fiances pc and its a very basic one

I've done a little more research and it seems the only thing that would be a problem is an intgrated (not dedicated) graphics card. Would this mean the game would run OK but I wouldn't be able to use the 3D match engine? Might have to settle for that...

Anyone give me a hand choosing? Thanks in advance.
