  3. No way to tell it only gives it as an i5 without any model number. And it only has 4gb RAM you'd have to get more RAM to at least 8gb. SO no.
  4. I think it's gone way off topic here. The lad has his options either the i3 or the Ryzen - the difference is minimal.
  5. As said - depends on how you play the game. You don't know what people run - most or not - we can't generalise. I don't think the Ryzen is better - I'm torn on it - but we're only comparing the Ryzen to the i3 - so lets not get bogged down here. The user wanted something under £1000 - and going to the Ryzen would have brought that above the £1000. I was keeping in budget and giving an awesome FM experience. Whether or not the Ryzen is slightly better or not was not a deciding factor in the selection. But I still maintain that I believe the i3 would be better in this instance. Anyway - ...
  6. Although i have been playing since Champs days and all the way through to FM12 my interest in new versions have waned for various reasons. However, i don't have a collection of all hours spent playing. Playing FM12 is a must for me.
  7. I would love to test it but cant. I am only going off raw specs and of course our conversations. What makes you say that anyway. I agree.
  8. The ryzen has a slower clock base speed. It has more cores/threads but that has been repeatedly downplayed for FM - as a lot of the game is still handled in the single thread. Ok FM will and does create as many threads and uses as many cores are as available. In the single core performance rating Ryzen 5 3600 2912 i3 9350K 2638 The difference isn't huge and I'd prefer the base speed over more cores for FM.

  10. A lot better how? Both 15inch screens Both 8gb RAM Both GTX 1050 graphics card Only slight upgrade is in processor and it's not even worth mentioning - you're paying an extra £50 for a small boost that is barely noticeable. In saying that - if you're happy to pay £50 extra then go for it. It's slightly better - so should be ok.
  11. Good This is considerably better https://www.box.co.uk/G531GU-AL315T-ASUS-ROG-Strix-G531GU-AL315T_2601655.html A Mac at this price would be entry price point.
  12. On your first post about buying a computer - copied above - you said you were looking for at 4gb RAM laptops as this is all you can afford. Now you come back and say you can buy an Apple Mac? Apple Mac start at about £1000 If you spend £1000 on a laptop you'll get a far superior computer for Football Manager. Of course, if you still want this Apple Mac then go for it.
  13. I bet I top everyone for FM2012 - it's the only version I play these days.
