  1. @DCBeast 13-14 inch laptops are generally more expensive because they make small form parts specifically to get them portabler installing on any computer - login to your steam account and install it. You can install the game on as many computers as you like, but you can only be logged into your steam account on 1 computer at a time. As an example - this is the cheapest I can see https://www.box.co.uk/8FH65EAABU-HP-Pavilion-14-ce3501na_2842541.htm @louismarcus You won't get most leagues playable for 900 pound. Well you could, but it would run as slow as a tortoise going uphill on a rainy day in the mud. Adding in touchscreen is an additional cost and would take any in cash what you need to put towards your processor. I know you only play 2D - but most laptops with an integrated graphics card (built onto the processor) don't come with the high end processors required for what you want. If we take away the touchscreen - this would be best - https://www.box.co.uk/30027143-Medion-Erazer-P15601_2756374.html If you wanted touchscreen - this would be best - https://www.box.co.uk/30025976-Medion-Akoya-S4403_2496883.html But it is considerably worse than the one without the touchscreen linked above this one. IF you want it all - and as close to your dream you're looking at extreme prices: https://www.box.co.uk/NH.Q4VEK.006-Acer-Predator-Triton-900-PT917-71_2559533.html https://www.box.co.uk/20QV00BPUK-Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-(2nd-Gen)_2714896.html https://www.box.co.uk/20QV00BTUK-Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Extreme-(2nd-Gen)_2714898.html
  2. Well your CPU is circa 2013 - that makes it about 7 years old - and probably reaching end of life. The 8300H processor was made in 2018 so it's taking advantage of things that the 2013 processor can't because they didn't exist before. The scores for single core are a lot higher (almost double) - and important for FM.
  3. IT looks great. It is a desktop - so if you don't have a monitor you will need to also factor this cost in.

  5. I always do this - manage a club until they are champions several times, then resign. See who comes along with a job offer. Building squads is fun for me and one of the aspects of the game I really enjoy.
  6. It would work - but the hard drive would fill up fast! Not a lot of space there. This would be ok too - it's refurbished though - check the fineprint for the deal https://www.box.co.uk/(Grade-B)-Acer-Extensa-15-2540_2725492.html
  7. Correct on the processor - however it is only a 1.4ghz processor. It would have to be running cool to take advantage of the Turbo Boost technology - which Mac Book Airs are notoriously famous for getting hot which could trottle the processor speed. FM on a Mac requires 1.8ghz speeds. I can't vouch for any of these - but it would certainly save your lap from being scorched during play https://www.aliexpress.com/popular/macbook-air-cooler.html RAM I would upgrade to 8gb RAM (the max allowed anyway) Something like the below - make sure it can fit before buying (there's a link on the page for make sure it fits (edit* which doesn't seem to work for Apple)) https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMSX8GX3M2A1600C9-Vengeance-Laptop-Memory/dp/B006EWUOL8?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_2 https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/183064/Can+I+upgrade+the+memory+ram+in+a+Mabook+Air+Early+2014 2nd Edit* Hmmm - seemingly the RAM is soldered to the motherboard - so no upgrade option available. Sorry!
  8. 1, 2 maybe 10 - it's impossible to know. But I'd imagine you'd be very good for a long time.
  9. As others have said - it's the RAM that is being used here, nothing to do with disk space. The message for the error says it's looking for 3.8mb (3801604 bytes) of memory and it hasn't got any. IN addition to the post by @XaW I would recommend that you run CCLeaner https://www.ccleaner.com/ https://www.howtogeek.com/113382/how-to-use-ccleaner-like-a-pro-9-tips-tricks/
  10. Are you offfering him your job? He wants to be a manager not a coach/first team coach. Unless you are offering him a mangers job why would want to be a coach instead?
  11. I wouldnt be sure if it is compatible and cant check this out til Monday.
  12. Did you try offering it in installments plus cash up front?
  13. Installing the os is optional and done with a click on the site. Brings it to about 1550
  14. Well Medion are owned by Lenovo - so you haven't really stayed away
