  1. https://ao.com/product/9s716jd21068-msi-laptop-silver-54098-251.aspx Getting 10% off this one with a code, bringing cost down to £540. Looks like a rather good deal to me.
  2. I found an alternative version of the MSI laptop that @Smurf has been recommending. No SSD, but just under £600. http://www.ebuyer.com/770451-msi-gl62-7qf-gaming-laptop-backpack-9s7-16j562-1672 Intel Kabylake Core i5-7300HQ 2.5GHz 8GB RAM + 1TB HDD 15.6" Full HD + DVDRW NVIDIA GTX960M 2GB WIFI + Windows 10 Home I was going to get the Stormforce that @Barside recommended me a few pages back. However, my current laptop's still just about hanging on, and i've been paying off my season ticket for next season before i make the jump (next month). Currently got the MSI above and the HP Omen at John Lewis in my sights.
  3. Thanks @bennytee. Some good recommendations there. I'd set myself an arbitrary limit of £500, and seeing what i could get for that sort of cash. However, the Stormforce is tempting (equivalent spec on Laptops Direct is £120 more), and i could probably use the finance to pay over a few months instead... Bad man, tempting me with shiny things. Also, that table has made for interesting reading. I always assumed that the processor was just about obsolete, due to it's age. It takes an age to open up most applications and files, freezes regularly, and struggles with multitasking. Maybe it's just been dropped, stood on (by a child) and generally abused a bit too often.
  4. After about 5 years of good service, my laptop is finally, literally, falling to pieces. I didn't really do much research when i got it, and just went for an i5, as they were fairly new at the time. This i5 is a 2410M processor, and works alongside 4Gb RAM. It also has a great feature where it'll cook your knee, another where you can lift up the keyboard to store crumbs and things, and a screen bezel that needs to be cracked back into place before you can close the screen shut. However, i don't like those so much, so it's time to replace. I use it mostly for internet and FM. Occasional Office work, if i take it away for work, and my daughter's starting to get into Minecraft, but that's about it. I've noticed this one recommended earlier in the thread, and like the look of it: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hewlett-packard-refurbished-hp-15-ay167sa-15.6-intel-core-i5-7200u-2.5ghz-a1-z3c95ea/version.asp This seems very similar, but £10 more: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/refurbsihed-hp-pavilion-15-au191sa-15.6-intel-core-i5-7200u-2.5ghz-8gb-1tb-a1-z3d15ea/version.asp This would be about the top of my budget, but looks a good deal: http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hewlett-packard-refurbished-hp-15-ay168sa-15.6-intel-core-i7-7500u-2.7ghz-a1-z3c97ea/version.asp Thoughts?
  5. Just want to add that this thread, more than any other, has been the one to trigger the "light bulb moment" for me on this year's FM. I've had a go at implementing Cleon's possession theories - with very limited success; tried using my dominant, near plug and play, 433 Assymetrical from last season - no joy; attempted to counter attack, but that didn't go well either. I'd just "got" tactics over the last couple of years, and had become lazy. This thread has helped me remember how using some common sense TI and OI within a base tactical framework can be so effective, and has taken my Sassuolo team from 12th-14th-16th to 3rd. Well played sir, well played.
  6. End of season 4 in my first proper Dons game of FM13, and i finished third with 74 points. One point behind Celtic, who won the league. St Mirren were second, one goal better off than me. Bloody St Mirren. Playing a 3-1-3-1-2 formation, with Osbourne as anchor man at DMCr, Croatian lad Tibor Cica as a DLP in the MCr slot, 17 year old newgen Bill Anderson causing havoc at AMC. Cammy Smith and Tomas Necid up front as DLF and DF. Sold McGinn to The Rangers for £150k. He couldn't get near my team, and was only rated at 1.5 stars...
