    I'm a 31 year old sexual health practitioner, Walsall-born, Cardiff-based. Played FM since the days of Champ Man 1993, when I was surely the only 8 year old to win the European Cup.

  1. Same here - Windows 10 takes up about 20gb. Got rid of some of the pre-installed bumpfh too. After installing my main programs (Office, Photoshop, Lightroom and Steam) I have 38.7gb left on the SSD. I think I'll be installing a bigger SSD in the very near future!
  2. Received it today - first thing downloaded, obviously FM! So far, so good. Blitzing through the game! Could run every league if I wanted to, though the allure of managing in Malaysia or South Africa has passed me by so far! IPS screens have better viewing angles; quite surprising to see such a new laptop without it by default, but small price to pay for such a good laptop. It'll be hooked up to a monitor for the vast majority of the time in any case.
  3. I've also ordered this today. Lack of IPS screen a relatively minor annoyance for me as I'll be hooking it up to a monitor for much of the time. Going to be a shock to the system moving back to Windows from Mac after ten years, wish me luck...
  4. Sorry, I forgot that - been so long since I had the boxed version!
  5. Definitely - you just need to purchase a digital copy from a retailer (Game, Greenman Gaming, many other examples out there). You'll then get a product code to be inputted into Steam.
  6. Happy Anniversary! Year 22 for me (Champ Man 1993, purchased in 1994 - and I still play that version from time to time!) CEX in Cardiff have for sale one of my other managerial obsessions from that time; Kevin Keegan's Player Manager for the SNES. CEX selling it for more than my Mom paid for it back then!
  7. Thanks for the reply RedEvian. I've been reading up on Windows laptops since Brexit, as I suspected we'd have a substantial price rise in UK on Macs. Sadly, I was right! I'm edging closer to the Dell I linked to, but looking into your suggestions now too - thank you. I've only included i7 processors in my searching as I have missed the quad-core processor that I had in my earlier MBP when it comes to video editing. Don't know if there is still such a big difference between i5/i7 processors nowadays (?), so would love to hear of people's experiences.
  8. So, after last night's MacBook announcement, after 8 years away, it looks like I'm heading back to a Windows PC of some description. Aside from playing FM (which I never play with 3D matches; I'm still a 'text-only' antiquarian), I do a heck of a lot of photo/video editing. So graphics card is a must for me. I'm edging towards this: http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7566-laptop/pd?oc=cn56603&model_id=inspiron-15-7566-laptop , but as I'm so out of touch with PC manufacturers nowadays, just wondering what people think of Dell as much as this specific laptop. I can't seem to fi
  9. Dropbox doesn't work for me unfortunately, nor does transferring the tactics folder from Macbook - iPad through iTunes file sharing.
  10. I'd like to find this out too - sharing the tactics folder from FM2015 desktop version to the iPad via iTunes doesn't seem to work.
  11. You can't request affiliates in FMC - the board will occasionally make changes to these at the end of the season.
  12. On my current save, I started at Plymouth on Continental C Licence, won League 2. Season two - top of League 1 by Christmas when I left to take over West Ham in the relegation zone of Premier League, then took over at league champions Man Utd in Summer 2016 after Van Gaal retired. Realistic? Perhaps not. But bear in mind that when I took over at Man Utd, in the interview I pretty much rolled over and let the Board do what they like - I chose the 'I can work on a much smaller budget' etc responses, so maybe I'm a sitting duck...
