I've got a Dell Laptop with 1.3 Ghz processing speed

3gb RAM

320gb Hard drive space

Will this work with FM 12?

The processor looks as if it is below the min spec and you dont mention a graphics card so it may not run the game.

It does have a graphics card, just checked spec :)

Any processor and graphics card name? Or at least when you bought it...1.3 ghz does not mean anything (except that it will be slow, but more info is needed to tell whether you can actually run the game)...or maybe laptop full name...

The processor is AMD Brazos C60 and the graphics is AMD Integrated Radeon HD 6290? :/

Ouch. You probably can run a couple of leagues with an acceptable speed (not fast, but still playable). 3D match engine-wise - should run on minimum detail. RAM-wise you are fine.

Mind you, if it is a netbook, I think there is some issue with the skin (not release yet or something) so bear that in mind.

I might be getting another laptop for Christmas which has an Intel Celeron Duel Core Processor with a speed of 2.1Ghz

It is a much better option for anything really, I (my sister actually) has one of those and it doesn't cause any problems, for FM they are good enough for normal performance.

I've ordered an Acer Travelmate 5335 with an Intel Celeron Dual Core Processor at a speed of 2.1gHz. Also the RAM is 2gb. It also has a graphics card. Will FM work with this?

Yes should be fine as long as you don't play a few other programmes along with FM as the RAM is only 2 GB and FM requires 1 GB RAM so you don't have much leftover but something like Internet Explorer + Skype + FM should be handled within 2 GB.

The processor is OK to load a few leagues and the 3D should work on medium details. Good purchase. Good luck playing :)

No way you can know how the graphics will handle on those specs? Not enough information.

The graphics is HD2000 Sandy Bridge of B950. I know what it can do with other stuff as I tested it back home when I was dealing with my sister's laptop (same processor). From what I saw from it, I think medium settings seems doable. Unfortunately, I didn't have FM12 back then to test it :D Worst case scenario, for fluid matches you will go down to low level...it isn't that bad for FM.

The graphics card does 80 FPS on low level on FIFA 12 and 23 FPS on Racedriver Grid (again on low) - I don't think FM12 is any heavier for the 3D match engine than those two so should be fine on low and I think Medium, too.

Will this laptop run FM12 well?

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/hp-pavilion-g6-1232sa-15-6-laptop-red-11290980-pdt.html

Processor AMD Dual-Core E2-3000M processor (1.8 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 1 MB L2 cache)

Operating System Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

RAM 4 GB

- DDR3

- 6 GB maximum expandable memory

Graphics card AMD Radeon HD 6380G Dual GPU

-1 GB DDR3 dedicated

- up to 1.98 GB total

I think the graphics card is good enough to run matches in 3D?

But the processor is only 1.8GHz and the system requirements say min 2.GHz on Windows 7. Would that make a big difference?

If not what's the best laptop I could get for around £400 that would run it it quickly?

THANKS!

Tight on cash now but looking to get the cheapest laptop under £100 if possible that can play FM12, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

People here say 8gb is a waste in order to play FM, why is that guys?

Thanks

FM won't use that much memory, so it's only really useful if you are running other memory hungry things at the same time as FM.

Thanks. And as the savegame keeps going in size, whats the most important thing RAM or processing speed?

To negate the slowing down over time the best, go with a SSD. Works for me.

And folks; a laptop is a pc (personal computer) A pc can be a desktop, or a laptop. A pc can also be a laptop or desktop running on MacOS. A Apple personal computer is also a pc, whether it is a desktop or a laptop.

My next laptop - which amongst other things will also be used for FM 2013, naturally - will most probably be a Clevo P150E (here under the guise Multicom Kunshan P150E), with a Core i7-3820QM processor, 240 Gb Intel 520 series SSD + a regular spin disk, 16 Gb 1600 MHz DDR3 RAM, and a Nvidia GTX 680M graphics card. The latter being totally overkill for FM, I know - but FM will not be the only game I will play on it. The amount of RAM is needed for other things than FM, but it won't hurt. The processor and SSD will be very handy for FM, however. This will be my only pc, used both for work and pleasure, so it needs to be this powerful. Well ... need .... let me rephrase that; the power of this pc will be very helpful for me. This laptop will most probably also be my last pc untill Intel makes it next giant leap in processing technology (Haswell).

This laptop can be found under other names, depending on country and vendor. In UK you will find the same laptop but with other branding and model names - for example @ pcspecialist.co.uk, and pwnpcs.co.uk.

Processing speed.

To negate the slowing down over time the best, go with a SSD. Works for me.

SSD & FM performance is pretty much a placebo effect. Whilst processing on full-detail, my FM.exe only read an average of 68Bytes/sec and a mode response time of 3ms (average 5ms). You are not going to notice that. Most of the data is in RAM, hence the low disk overhead.

Nevertheless, I am experiencing no noticable slowdown with a SSD in my system, compared to what I noticed when I had exactly the same machine as now, only with a regular spin disk as OS/ system disk. I can't explain why, as it shouldn't matter much. But it does. The other thing is of course load and save times. With a SSD, I don't really notice the hold-up, or the little notice you get that says "saving game ...)" It goes by so fast I don't really have to wait moving on with the game at all. 3 file save every fortnight.

no, my father bought it in game store

I would recommend going back to the store and asking them where the key is. If you bought it in the store 1st hand then it should be on the box or manual.

If it was second hand then, well, I guess they kept it

I'm sorry but I really don't know. I wasn't even aware the game was for sale in Germany.

If there is nothing on the box or the manual, then I would try contacting SI customer service with photographic proof of what you bought.

Or, buy FM 2012 from the internet again, it should be heavily reduced due to being old.

I can't really suggesting anything else.

If the game was bought new, then it should have the authentication code on the box. If it was bought second hand, then the code has probably been used and cannot be used again and shouldnt have been sold. You really need to start by going back to the store that sold it.

I'm sorry to hear that.

FM 12 should be quite cheap now, if you can find it anywhere, although I think they don't sell it on steam anymore to force people to buy the new one.

Even FM 13 should be reduced at some point in the coming weeks. If I was you I would keep an eye out on the steam shop and try and buy it there.
