Thanks mate

It should run the 3D OK on high or medium at the very least. The processor is kind of crappy though, worse than my machine from Jan 07 so not many leagues. I wouldn't pay very much for anything with specs like that.

Thank you very much for the helpful advice. Yourself and Ishu have been brilliant.

After much reading on this excellent thread and some searching I have it down to two options.

One is a recommendation from a previous post by Ishu

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B003N195U4/ref=asc_df_B003N195U41154552?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&tag=googlecouk06-21&linkCode=asn&creative=22206&creativeASIN=B003N195U4

the other is a dell studio 15 with the following specs;

Processor: T7250 Intel Core2 Duo 2.0GHz (2MB Cache, 800MHz FSB) Memory: 3GB (3072MB) DDR2 800MHz Hard Drive: 250GB Serial (SATA) 5400 RPM Display/Screen: 15.6" 1366x768 White LED Widescreen Display with TrueLife 720p HD Optical drive: DVD-ReWriter Drive Graphics Card: ATI Mobility RADEON HD 4570 Graphics with 512MB RAM

I have found them for a similar price and would be grateful for an opinion which to go for. Having read this thread I would have thought they would both cope with 3d and a reasonable amount of leagues/players. Strikes me that the Dell may be the better general gaming laptop.

However, what do I know?

Thoughts would be appreciated, particularly on 3-D capability

10 leagues with 30k players is perfect. I would have said 25k if you had not told me ;).

Yes good guess by me. I will be loading 6 playable leagues (all english leagues), all the other leagues on view only with around 30k of players.

The CPU in the acer is not good.

If you are on STEAM you can play on both anyway.

Sony Vaio is better than dell in everything (love the sony keyboard) except the graphic card.

If you play only FM get the Sony. If you play other games, then that depends on the games.

Thanks for the response. Reason i asked was cos i bought the game last nite and with a small database and just english league selected its given me just half a star for both performance and speed. Do i ignore dat or is it accurate?

I KNOW that stars don't work in FM10. Don't have FM11 but people (except SI guys) are saying that it doesn't work either.

I should add to the post above that I don't mind slow processing speeds between matches. (It generally takes me at least a couple of weeks to complete a season)

But I want it to be stable into 7/8 seasons and for 3D to run well.

Thanks

And how about my desktop?:

Intel Core2 Quad Q9650 @ 3GHz

4GB DDR2 RAM

64 bit OS

Windows Vista

NVIDIA GeForce GTX260

I initially set up with all leagues and a large DB. Computer performance showed 5 stars, but game speed was 1/2 star. I plan on running a long save game over many seasons, so have concerns how this would perform after 10-15 seasons.

Im not too bothered about having the fastest gaming experience, but on the other hand don't want to sit around for half an hour waiting for the game to save.

That should be decent if you are patient IMO. 45 leagues for middling performance.

Ishu - thanks for these links.

How many leagues and players could each laptop run on 3D high quality?

Do you mean leagues loaded in foreground or background also? Thank you.

1)15 - 20 leagues/ 25 if you're patient. 30k players.

2)Yep.

Set it up however you want. Small/med/large, view-only, loaded etc. Just try and keep the no of players b/w 80k and 100k.

Hi,

I'm thinking avout buying a portable laptop in order to Play FM11 on the go.

I would like something smaller and lighter than 15.6 inch (between 13 - 14 inch would be great)

Currently I have Asus 1215n but find it to be a bit too slow for my needs.

I'm probably going to buy used / second hand. My budget is around £500.

Can you recommend anything?

Do we have to take reserve/youth leagues into account when it comes to the amount of leagues you can run? Or do they have a significant effect on the game speed?

For second hand, ebay would be the best bet afaik. Otherwise look into the last few pages, some good VF laptops there.

Hey thinking about buying a new laptop current one has been infected with blue screens and crash dumps for years, whilst also being rubbish at more than 10 leagues.

This is what I'm thinking of...

Inspiron N5010

Processor:Intel i3-370M(2.4GHz) Mobile CPUGenuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64 BIT)

4096MB (2x2048) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel

Optical Drive : 8X DVD+/-RW Drive including softwareDisplay 15.6in HD (1366X768) WLED with TrueLife

It's off of the Dell Refurbished stuff for £400. Is it worth it and how many leagues could it handle?

Thanks

Im running a:

Q6600 @ stock 2.4

4gb ram

and the "suggested" settings it only selected about 6 leagues. I only upped it to about 12 i think (England, Spain, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Holland,Germany & France) ) so i'll see how i get on.

What i'm not quite sure about is why the amount of players in a league goes down if you set it to view only. Just because i don't want to manage there doesn't mean i don't want the players.

Any limit on player numbers?

As FM11 dropped the extra players feature, No.

Think I will stick to just the no of leagues now.

LOL 12. I would easily load 30 leagues on that.
