  1. I don't know what this is. It's the best thing in the entire world!!!
  2. Approx the same - no need to wait if you can go instore and pick it up today. But, if you have 'you can wait' pants then I think you should save bit more and get something a bit better. Now this is 529 - and it has 4gb of RAM (which I don't think is enough you'd need to upgrade it sooner rather than later). https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GD-DM1276T-ASUS-FX504GD-DM1276T_2457791.html Or this is 600 - with the 8gb RAM - https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GD-UPGRADE-ASUS-FX504GD-DM1276T_2457792.html I'd highly recommend the 600 one, if you can. Or this - it would be 2nd hand though https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail/?id=SLAPACEAN51552010B&sku=SLAPACEAN51552010B&ref=pricespy&utm_source=pricespy&utm_campaign=pricespy&utm_medium=cpc
  3. Best I can find. https://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/dell-inspiron-15-5570-15-6-intel-core-i5-laptop-1-tb-hdd-black-10169763-pdt.html
  4. Even if you went for an 8300h or 8750h You would get five years easily. I don't know when fm will start utilising multi core that's really a question for FM staff. I asked before about this and ihave an answer in my inbox relating to it. A lot of people play on older machines and SI have the stats on people computer that play the game. Check the opening post too for a link to notebookchecker.
  5. Oh right... well I can't find anything the same for cheaper, and I can't build one for any cheaper anywhere else.
  6. FM still processes a lot of things in the single thread - here's a list of best single thread performance https://www.cpubenchmark.net/singleThread.html
  7. It's ok - a bit on the older side This is newer and approx same price https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GD-E4603T-ASUS-FX504GD-E4603T-Gaming-Laptop_2354095.html
  8. Yep for you. The price is the price - if you can pay it and it's in your budget then go for it. What is your budget?
  9. No bother - didn't want to be posting loads of links all over the forum, could have confused people. But yeh, looked at 500 pound laptops there recently.
  10. I'd go for the 2nd one - may struggle if too many leagues loaded.
  11. Then why spend so much on a laptop? Here's a 14 inch similar specs to Mac 13 inch The specification below has been formatted so you can easily copy and paste this to our forums when discussing your specification. Once you've copied the specification, please click here to continue. click here to continue.Chassis & DisplayLafité Series: Aluminium Chassis: 14" Matte Full HD IPS LED (1920 x 1080)Processor (CPU)Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core Processor i7-8565U (1.80GHz, 4.6GHz Turbo) Memory (RAM)16GB Corsair 2133MHz SODIMM DDR4 (2 x 8GB)Graphics CardINTEL® HD GRAPHICS (CPU Dependant) - 1.7GB Max DDR4 Video RAM - DirectX® 121st M.2 SSD Drive500GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO PLUS M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 3500MB/R, 3200MB/W)Memory Card ReaderIntegrated 6 in 1 Card Reader (SD /Mini SD/ SDHC / SDXC / MMC / RSMMC)Price £930.00 including VAT and DeliveryUnique URL to re-configure : https://www.pcspecialist.ie/saved-configurations/lafiteiii-14/pmurtuJnAK/ ================= The Mac version - if you put 16 gb RAM and up the storage to 512gb (as per the one I put together) the price is £1779 and the processor is an i5 - of lesser speed. The processor in the Mac is the i5-8210Y - and the one I have selected is the i7-8565U The graphics in the Mac is the UHD 617 and the one I have selected is the UHD620 - a tiny bit better. Why pay more for less? Of course - it's completely up to you - the Mac is a fine computer - it's just the price that gets me. Granted the Windows machine won't last as long as the Mac when not plugged in - but if you're mostly plugged in - or only travelling for a couple of hours. If you're travelling more then perhaps I can find something with a bit more battery oomph.
