Which laptop should I buy to play FM20 with more leagues?
It's about time to replace my 4 year old Dell XPS 13. It currently runs Fm19/20 on about 2 stars with 30K players loaded (typically custom database w/ national rep and all England loaded). It's playable but I'm noticing 20 is running slower (maybe because it's beta?) I've also always wanted to load a ton of leagues and do a journeyman save, or just have a ton loaded but not playable for more realism. 3 stars or better for speed would be great. :)
Here are the options I'm considering, Football Manager is probably the most intensive game I play on my laptop so I'm sticking with 13 inch options. (Current laptop has i7, 8 gb ram, 256 gb ssd, integrated graphics card)
Surface Laptop 3: Intel Ice Lake i7, 16 GB RAM, Iris Plus Graphics, 256 GB SSD. I hear CPU is more important than graphics for Football Manager, but will this still be good?
Dell XPS 13: Intel Comet Lake i7 (6 cores so apparently super fast for the size??), Iris integrated graphics (100 higher than my current XPS), 16 GB RAM, 512 SSD
Macbook Pro: i7, likely 16gb RAM, Iris Plus Graphics, 256 GB SSD. I've never owned a Macbook so this one is tempting since I own the rest of the Apple products. But feels very expensive for what it is so I'd love a Macbook Pro owner to chime in on game quality and how long the Macbook lasts :)
