  1. Ordered the 2nd one (Asus 8300 with the 256 SSD) after all the advice I received...thanks guys...delivery isn't until the start of Feb though which is a pain.
  2. Okay, I'm starting to think a gaming laptop is probably the best bet...even though I don't play FM as much as I used to. The one in my link on the post up above is one I could go for, but there's also a couple of others just in budget which I could consider. Could anyone advise which I should maybe go for? I'm after a fast machine that will handle loads of programmes running at the same time. https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-erazer-p6689-15.6-inch-intel-core-i5-8250u-8gb-1tb-gtx-1050-4gb-wind-30023993/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asus-fx504gd-e41275t-core-i5-8300h-8gb-256gb-ssd-15.6-inch-nvidia-geforce-g-fx504gd-e41275t/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asus-tuf-fx504gd-core-i5-8300h-8gb-1tb-15.6-inch-geforce-gtx-1050-2gb-windo-fx504gd-e4603t/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-erazer-p6681-core-i5-7200u-8gb-1tb-geforce-gtx-1050-4gb-15.6-inch-wi-30023991/version.asp Definitely going to go with one of these, I'd just like to get the best machine really, so if there's not much difference I'd rather go for the cheapest, yet if the higher priced ones are much better overall then I'd be happy to go to the top end of my budget.
  3. Thanks for the advice. I don't actually play FM much now really, so that aspect isn't as much a priority as years before. I need a good, fast laptop that can handle several programmes running at once with the best performance (mainly for work purposes), that's why I thought an SSD laptop would be better for my needs...plus my current laptop has only used roughly 110gb of storage so a 256gb SSD should be more than enough. Or should I just splash out on the gaming laptop and not worry about the SSD as the gaming one will also be as fast as I need?
  4. Evening all... I posted this in OTF but it's a bit slow down there so not much response. I'm after some advice on the laptops below, here's the original message and links I posted. Reeto...am now in a position to buy a new laptop so been searching on Save on laptops and Laptops Direct to see what I could get. I think I'm after an i5, something fast needed really where I've got several programs and files running simultaneously, so probably one of the quad core models (that's what I've seemingly read up on when checking) and at least 8gb of RAM, harddrive space isn't a biggy so probs a 256gb SSD would be enough seeing as I use cloud storage so much. Only real game I'd play on the laptop is FM (and I'm still only on FM17 so FM isn't a huge demand for the needs of the laptop), but I barely play it much nowadays so am not too bothered about dedicated graphics. I've found the following models which seem to fit what I'm after. Can any OTFers advise me on whether these are good deals or not and which one you would go for? These seem to be the cheapest ones I can find and I'd hate to be spending more than £600 really. Any advice is massively appreciated. If anyone also knows of any better deals on better machines please also advise. (The last one is a gaming laptop which doesn't have an SSD, but it is within budget so thought I'd link it). https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/X540UA-DM564R-Asus-VivoBook-15-X540UA-DM564R_2366605.html https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/lenovo-v330-intel-core-i5-8250u-8gb-256gb-ssd-15.6-inch-windows-10-laptop-81ax00cbuk/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asus-vivobook-core-i5-8250u-8gb-256gb-ssd-15.6-inch-hd-windows-10-laptop-s510ua-br686t/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/acer-travelmate-p2510-g2-m-84tk-core-i5-8250u-8gb-256gb-15.6-inch-windows-1-nx.vguek.006/version.asp https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/medion-erazer-p6689-15.6-inch-intel-core-i5-8250u-8gb-1tb-gtx-1050-4gb-wind-30023993/version.asp
  5. I can never picture Kevin Nolan holding that trophy above his head so no.
  6. Probably my favourite ever...nearly every match has been terrific and I think most teams have generally tried to attack.
  7. Would still prefer Neville over caricature Roy Keane
  8. BBC...ITV has definitely been better this time, but whenever there's a choice I always go BBC...always seems slicker and more professional and no adverts...ITV only pull it back a bit because of Neville and Bilic, but the rest of their offering as a package is a bit bland.
  9. Both sides here pose problems for us, albeit different problems of course. So, I'm happy with either winning. Croatia I kind of have a sift spot for, but Russia winning would be ace for their fans and they have hosted a truly fantastic tournament. Hope it's just a good game really.
  10. I thought that was just bloody brilliant...didn't think any one of our players had a bad game.
  11. Everyone needed just the 1 knockout game to believe...the fact we did it on pens as well, and coming from behind, means any England fan should rightly so have belief that we're going to do it. If you can't think like that after what happened, then when can you?
  12. I have a horrible feeling we're going to lose 2-1...and I really don't want to have that horrible feeling.
