     Say if the club offers for loan and has them as a key player, but decide to bench him or not even pick him in the match squad (}if fitness less than 80%{) then they pay money for that. 



    Do you know of any real life deal done like that? No club would loan players on that basis

    I'm surprised that it's that much slower - not really sure why it's all that slower.

    My only guess would be that your original computer didn't get too hot when playing so it could play without being throttled. Whereas your new computer is probably getting hot and causing the processor to go slower to prevent overheating/damage.

    Try a laptop cooler.

    Might also be a good idea to see if the vents are blocked with dust.


    £300 is a bit of an ask. Looking through some clearance items for you I can find this http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/acer-aspire-e5-573g-core-i5-4210u-4gb-1tb-geforce-920m-2gb-15.6-inch-window-nx.mvmek.011/version.asp

    It's a bit over your price range.

    All I can suggest is perhaps saving a bit more and getting something that has longevity rather than a short term solution that requires further investment sooner rather than later.




    Thanks for your help, I too was surprised, the old one ran FM so well, but this one is unusably slow and has been since i bought it. Which is more important for the day to day speed, and match speed, ram or processor .  Just wondering so if i can save up a bit more I can see whteher i should be going for an i5 processor or  more ram


    Also should say FM itself recognizes the new one as significantly worse. drops it to half a star performance with only one countries leagues loaded

    Depends on what the specs are - can you post both computers in the order of



    Graphics Card


    In terms of a new computer

    What is your budget?

    What are your expectations from FM: 3D, long career save, fast day to day, etc.?

    Computer 1:  CPU - Core i3-4005U,   RAM: 4GB  Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics, Share

    Computer 2:  CPU  Intel® Pentium® Processor N3700,  RAM: 4GB  Graphics Card: Unsure


    Should computer 1 really be so much faster than computer 2?


    New Computer: Ideally Acer Laptop.  Like 3D, career save up to 10 years, as fast as possible day to day.

    Budget: As low as possible seeing as I already bought a new laptop, max price approx £300

  4. Hi,


    I used to have a laptop Acer Aspire E5-571-304M which ran FM very well for me, 3D and fast processing (at least what I term fast). Unfortunately this broke so I went and bought and Acer Aspire ES1-531-P5SA thinking this was an upgrade. Unfortunately this laptop runs Football Manager exceptionally slow, taking me a very long time to run even a match, and I can walk away from the laptop going from one day to the next even if I really limit my leagues. 

    Can someone offer me advice if the laptop I have bought is worse for FM than the old one or if its something else wrong. Also can someone please recommend an Acer laptop which will run FM slightly better than the original (I say it needs to be Acer cause I have a lot of spare parts (cables and batteries etc) which I would like not to waste). Please keep the price as cheap as possible as I only have limited money and want to spend as small amount as possible
