  1. All anyone has to do is go to https://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Processors-Benchmark-List.2436.0.html Find both processors and tick mark them - and hit the restrict button If you're still not sure - go to https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php Find both and compare them
  2. At the end of the day I am not doing it for SI. Nine years ago I bought a computer for FM and it didnt work. I spent close to a grand on it. Wasted money. As fM is the only game I play, I put stock into understanding the game and required specs for a good solution. You can buy two computers for the same price. One could be severely underpowered and not suitable for FM. I really dont want others to fall into the same trap. Once you buy the computer you really arent in a position to buy again. Its a lot of money. All i am doing is advising what people spend their 500, 600, 700,800
  3. Well I ran the last Laptop buyers guide thread and @kevhamsterkindly agreed to start it over. The first laptop thread I ran went to well over 200 pages.

  5. Thanks @Brother Ben you are a gent and a scholar. Highly recommend all buying a new system to Benchmark here. Like Covid... we are all in this together!
  6. 2nd one Where no graphics card is stated it means it's not a dedicated graphics card - but integrated with the CPU. They didn't omit it - it's part of the CPu and there's no dedicated graphics card. Says in the opening thread that we are NOT IT professionals. Not good enough processor. It's only 1.30ghz and FM 21 is min requirement is 1.8ghz FM 20 requires 2.2ghz or above. https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/196597/intel-core-i7-1065g7-processor-8m-cache-up-to-3-90-ghz.html The 3500U is 2.1ghz - and FM 21 requ
  7. Hate seen money wasted - so I thought to be honest rather than lead you down the wrong path. This is really good https://www.box.co.uk/FA506IH-BQ027-ASUS-TUF-Gaming-A15-FA506IH-BQ027-(NO-OP_2913034.html Then these two https://www.box.co.uk/FX505GT-BQ008T-ASUS-TUF-Gaming-FX505GT-BQ008T_2940903.html https://www.box.co.uk/30029417-Medion-Crawler-E10_3201865.html I don't see anything in the £600 at the moment. I only checked that one site though - if you can get the first one anywhere else cheaper then that's the one to go for. The other 2 ar
