  1. Depends what you're using it for. Second one will run a little faster if I'm not mistaken. Both look pretty much the same to me. Eeni meeni myyni mo...
  2. I ordered the laptop. It comes this Friday. I'll let you know how I get on when I get it. Thanks very much for the help, greatly appreciated.
  3. Thanks for the reply, MSCCG. I just realised that laptop would have to be shipped over from England, and it carries a hefty delivery fee, i'm not comfortable ordering it from there either when I could get someting in Ireland. I just came across another one. Here are the specs: Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 Windows 8 15.6 inch LED HD Display 6Gb Memory 1TB Hard Drive Integrated Bluetooth® and high-speed 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity Integrated DVD reader/writer USB2.0, USB 3.0 connectors and 2-in-1 card-reader Integrated 720p HD webcam. HDMI output This is a Lenovo laptop. My only concern is that it doesn't mention whether the processor is an m series or u series. I have checked the lenovo website and this Lenovo G500 comes with several different processors: 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3632 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3612 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7-3520 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5-3230M 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3120M 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3130M Intel® Pentium 2030M Intel® Pentium 2020M Intel® Pentium 1005M 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-2340 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3110 Intel® Pentium 1000M Intel® Pentium B980 Intel® Pentium B960 Intel® Celeron® Processor 1005M I noticed: 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3120M 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3130M 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-2340 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3110 These are the i3 processors. Are the bottom two u series? I suppose its worth asking if there is much difference playing wise between the u and m series? Sorry for the overwhelming amount of information, thanks for the help. p.s here is a link to the laptop: http://www.littlewoodsireland.ie/lenovo-g500-intelreg-coretrade-i3-processor-6gb-ram-1tb-hard-drive-wi-fi-156-inch-laptop-black/1354381268.prd
  4. Hi, I have been lurking this thread for quite some time now, absorbing the necessary knowledge to purchase a laptop competent enough to play Football Manager 2014. It's kind of confusing as I'm sure many will agree. Now, I have gathered quite a bit of information regarding specs and such. So far I have gathered the following: An i5 core processor is good but an i3 is sufficient (clarification?), at least 4GB of Random Access Memory (clarification?), an m series processor is better than a u series (clarification?), a dedicated graphics card is better than an integrated graphics card but only for 3d matches, and that's about it. So, that's what I have been looking for. Obviously, like many others, I'm on a budget (€400 range), which makes this very challenging. The reason why I'm posting at this moment is because I belive I have stumbled across a laptop that is well within my budget. I just want to know from the experts on here, if it's good or not. Here is the specs: Screen size - 15.6 in Processor - Intel Core i3 3110M - 2.4 GHz RAM - 4 GB **** - We have great deals on memory upgrades, if you need more Ram please call our sales team on 0871 971 0005 Hard Drive - 500 GB Operating System - Windows 8.1 (64-Bit) Optical Drive - DVD Super Multi Warranty - 1 year warranty Well guys? Could you tell me if this is good? And if so, what exactly makes this a good choice? Or if it's bad, and if so, what exactly makes it's bad. Thank you so much for reading my lengthy post, I would greatly appreciate any responses.
