I have been noticing that there have been a lot of posts on laptop specs for FM recently so thought I few of you may be able to help me.
Basically, Im going to be buying a new Laptop soon and Im unsure on the Specs I will need. It has to be able to run FM with many leagues loaded and the 3D match engine on the highest quality with no lag. Will also need to run other high end games with no lag, games such as Skyrim, Saints Row etc. I have a budget of around 500 pounds (preferably a bit lower), so i was wondering if any of you guys could help me shop online for the best deal as I really have no clue what I need. Also, Im not really bothered where it is from (ebay, pc world, tesco etc).

I hope you don't mind me hijacking the thread, my question is similar. I'm about to buy new laptop, I was wondering what are the most important specifics that I should look for in order to be able to play FM with many leagues loaded and active?
i got the laptop mentioned earlier the hp pavillion dv6, except for £550. i5 processor and 6gb ram. The system 3d rating for fm is 1.5 stars and the computer performance rating is 5 stars on fm. it has been perfect for me.
for your requirements you wont be able to get that kind of laptop for £500 pounds but this is the best option if you will push your budget.
for everyone who asked you wont get a better deal than the dell outlet! my prices were for the 17 inch not 15 inch to.. xps 1502, which is a 15 inch will be cheaper. when i say refurbished as long as you get the right cpu which is most of them ...they were only released in 3rd quarter of 2011 so at most there 4 months old. if need abit of assitance then pm me your email will gladly help
but do you guys think that machine will be good enough to run multiple leagues with a large database
it will be fine....and is a good price for brand new.... can get refurbished from dell and a 17 inch screen for about 380 - 400 though...and thats with an i5 which is a nice step up from an i3 and for 550 - 600 could nab yourself a 17 inch screened i7 which will be next step up from i5. and is also quad core which i believe fm actually takes advantage of.
