Thank you for your reply. Is i7 what I should be aiming for or is i5 acceptable? 

It's not that an i7 is better, you have been grossly misinformed. Any modern i5 I pick would easlly thrash the i7 you posted. 

An i5 would be fine - but you need to look for HQ at the end of the processor name.

And severely increase your budget to circa £600.

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for new laptop for FM19. 

My budget is £450. 

I don't play in 3d, only 2d. 

I will play with a small database - 2-3 leagues. 

From reading this thread I've seen that 8gb of RAM and an i5 processor with a 2.2ghz or higher base speed should be adequate for what I want. 

I've seen these laptops, will they be a decent option for my requirements? And will any of these be particularly better than the others, or all quite similar in performance? Or are there any other suggestions? 

Thanks in advance.

Pushed i would go for the third one. But you will need an external drive there is very little storage.

Others are roughly the same. For an extra 150 you would do much better.

Thanks for the reply! 

Could you let me know what to look out for when looking at slightly more expensive ones. Or do you have any recommendations? 

I've seen that you have linked these before - would they be better than the ones I originally saw?

They would be, but they still wouldn't play the game very well.

The reason Smurf said you could get much better for another £150 or so is because then you could get something like this: https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16J962-2073-MSI-GL62M-7RDX-2073UK_2245212.html

Better processor (with higher base speeds), has both a Solid State Drive to speed up booting and the space of a 1TB normal hard drive, and a dedicated graphics card that'll help the game when it comes to playing matches, all for about an extra £120.

ADMI GAMING PC PACKAGE: 24 Inch 1080p Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse and Gaming Headset AMD A10-9700 3.8GHz Quad Core Radeon R7 1TB HDD, 8GB RAM, Wifi, F3 Gaming Case, No Operating System https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00OG9XF4Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_ACG1Bb87T5XTD

 

Would this be any good

The processor isn't terrible, it's about 2 years old, and it has 8GB RAM, but it has no graphics card (so you'd either be looking at 2D or very poor 3D unless you bought a new graphics card for it) and no operating system. You'd be looking at an extra £100 or so for a legit copy of Windows 10, and depending what other games you wanted to play, about £150-200 at least for a solid graphics card, which would bring the total price to about £650-700.

The processor in that is pretty mediocre, as it's an Intel i3 processor, which isn't really designed for games or anything particularly intensive, which is why most of us would suggest an i5 or i7 processor (which are more expensive, but that's because they run things better/faster). It'd play the game, but not very well. For an extra £80 or so, you could get a better laptop, like this one:

And for another £150, this one:

Hello, I currently have a budget laptop which has run it's course now and is going really slow.


On FM18 i have a lower league database and my laptop just can't handle it and it feels like its gonna overheat and processing a day takes ages.

With FM demands becoming increasingly higher year on year i want to buy FM19 as well as a new laptop  but don't want to go through that same experience of it not being able to handle lower leagues.

 

Unfortunately i am not blessed with money so was looking at cheaper laptops to buy, would the below be capable of running FM19 to a decent standard? I'm not expecting super speed but i dont want my experience to be excruciating. The speed and running of the game is literally make or break for me as to whether i should buy FM19 or not, TIA.

I have looked at the FM19 specifications but i am a computer noob so it doesn't make much sense to me

Sorry, but that laptop isn't made for playing any games really, just work stuff and watching Youtube or Netflix. The processor is minimum spec, and given it doesn't say what integrated graphics it is using, I can't even say if that would be good enough for bare minimum. If your current laptop can't run a lower league database, this one wouldn't be any better, I'm afraid. To play the game to any decent degree, you're looking at £600 minimum really for a new laptop.

Been reading thru thread, i have 900 pound budget for new FM laptop. am i right thinking the Asus below is better than Omen???

Hi, First post (woo)

I just got a macbook pro through work, and they dont really mind what i install on it. Previously used fm14 - 18 it on a pretty weak personal laptop (toshiba satellite), and it had real trouble towards the end, so don't really want to play on that anymore. That had 2 stars of performance with about 5 leagues loaded in the end. 

Is it worth me buying fm19 for my macbook pro? I was thinking of getting a new personal laptop, but I doubt I can afford a high end one at the moment (PhD student), with max budget of £600. 

I normally play on 2d, with replays on 3d, but I do like loading a larger database. 

Specs:

Model Name: MacBook Pro

  Model Identifier: MacBookPro15,2

  Processor Name: Intel Core i5

  Processor Speed: 2.3 GHz

  Number of Processors: 1

  Total Number of Cores: 4

  L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB

  L3 Cache: 6 MB

  Memory: 8 GB

  Chipset Model: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655

 

Thanks! (and I know macbooks aren't great value for money- but I got this one for free)

Thoughts on the above?

 

What is more important to run the game smoothly, using 2D? Memory or Processor? I currently have 4GB memory and Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-3230M CPU @2.60GHz

 

My current PC is a HP Pavillion Notebook PC. They're not meant for games are they?

 

I've had it for a couple of years but the main issue that the battery doesn't last long when playing and can someimes lag.

Should be ok - play the demo when it's out and see for yourself.

Yea, the second one is better. It has more memory on the graphics card, and has a 120Hz refresh rate on the screen, so it should make things appear smoother.

While I wouldn't normally reccomend this as it's a ulv and it's base clock is only 1.8ghz (but boosts up to 4ghz), the i7 8550u is actually suprisingly capable with FM 19 on my new laptop as it is able to hold the turbo for hours, I even did a 3-4 hour session the other night and ran a tool to track the clock speed and it did fluctuate but it never went below 2.4ghz (on battery however it went down to 2ghz even so it still was higher than 2.4ghz most of the time on battery) and in general was usually over 3ghz during the session. It probably helps that I have a 15 inch laptop that has good cooling as in an ultrabook there would be extreme throttling, I got this as I needed a convertible for certain things that I have to do, I would say in the right laptop with the right cooling fm should run pretty smoothly, however that dosen't mean I would reccomend this over a HQ or H processor for FM, but if you need better battery, portability or a certain form factor then the i7 8550u is not a bad thing to play FM on. If anyone wants to know what I have its called the HP Spectre x360 15.

First time on forums. HI. Question to help please.

Is it better to have, 

i5-8300H Quad-Core with Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB 

or

i7-8750H Hexa-Core with Nvidia GTX 1050 4GB

I'd actually say the first one. as the processors, for FM, are broadly comparable, but the 1060 6GB graphics card will be better for other games than the 1050 4GB.

Thoughts on this? I watch games in 3D so that side of things is definitely important to me. Think I’d be able to load a decent amount of countries/leagues etc? With a large database?

If you want 3D, that's not a good computer. The processor isn't the best, though it'll play the game, but it has no dedicated graphics card, so 3D would be poor at best, and you wouldn't be able to play any other games on it really.

Saving up another £150, you could get this one, which would run the game in 3D easily, and you'd be able to play other games on it too without much trouble - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-nitro-5-15-6-intel-core-i5-gtx-1050-gaming-laptop-1-tb-hdd-10181374-pdt.html

Well now I’m REALLY confused because they moved me away from one I was looking at in store SPECIFICALLY to this one BECAUSE the one I was looking at in store didn’t have a dedicated graphics card, where as they said this one did?! Like that was the ENTIRE reason for them pointing me to this one! They brought their gaming guy over & everything. WTF?!

BTW I don’t play any other PC games, just FM. But watching the games in 3D is a must for me.

Well to be fair they are not half wrong the gpu on that is the best integrated gpu you can get on a laptop and nearly matches a gtx 950m so that will handle 3d fine. The processor is ok and the boost will do a good job. Honestly its actually not bad for 500, although if you can afford it I would get the one listed at 650 by the poster above.

This is the graphics card, no?! Like I said, I don’t play any other PC games so I only need it for FM 3D. Is this gonna simply just run 3D smoothly without being jerky? (a problem on my ancient Vista PC that I’m looking to replace!).

For FM it should run the 3d on medium smoothly, the cpu however will play fm itself ok as it meets the requirements and is quite a capable cpu. However as its amd I have no idea if that cpu would throttle. For reference I have a mx150 which is about 40% better and plays 3d on high settings and a processor clocked at 1.8ghz (with 4ghz boost) and that runs FM pretty well.

Cheer dude. Like I say, I’ve little to no interest in other PC games, so if I can get by well enough with 3D without seeing the whites of the linesmans eyes, that’s ok. 

I know it’s by no mean an exact science, but roughly how many leagues/countries would you realistically run on it?

Hard to say, a better count would be how many players can it handle for example on my current save I have about 60k players and about 8 nations. As the 2700u on that laptop is of roughly the same level as my laptops processor I would suggest to actually run leas (maybe 40k players and 6 nations for example).

Intel Core i7 720QM processor (1.6GHz, 6MB L3 cache)

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 1GB.

8GB DDR3 RAM (2x 4GB)

 

Whats your preferred laptop for playing FM with a good database, lots of leagues and have great speed and low system noise?

 

Budget is around £1000-1200 aprox.

Make sure you install games/apps on the HDD as the SSD has very little space

If 3d matches not all that important - cheaper option

https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/SABRE-17G-V8-CF2-Gigabyte-Sabre-17G-V8-CF2_2352165.html

 

Cheaper again - but obv not as good - but ok

If you want 3D, that's not a good computer. The processor isn't the best, though it'll play the game, but it has no dedicated graphics card, so 3D would be poor at best, and you wouldn't be able to play any other games on it really.

Saving up another £150, you could get this one, which would run the game in 3D easily, and you'd be able to play other games on it too without much trouble - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-nitro-5-15-6-intel-core-i5-gtx-1050-gaming-laptop-1-tb-hdd-10181374-pdt.html

Y’know, in a way I’m somewhat tempted to save up & go for this one if it will make a significant difference. In practice & layman’s terms, how much difference would this make over my other selection?

Difference is night and day. 

100% recommend saving up and getting it.

How so? Could you try & explain to some who really is in no way shape or form a computer person? Are we just talking the graphics on the 3D side of things or overall performance? i.e more players/leagues/nations etc?

Storage and RAM are the same. 

 

As you can see the on recommeded to you is far higher up the list of how they are ranked.


Here's another way of looking at it:

1431594283_ScreenShot2018-10-30at14_09_18.thumb.png.0c9ccc4654c5740d57d3edb85c17bf47.png

Above shows the i5-8300h vs the Ryzen 7 2700U - the i5 is showing all the green pluses.

SC - single core - there's a 32% increase in performance for the i5 - FM is still largely single core - so this is a huge plus over the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U.

It's also faster in the Quad Core (QC) and the Mixed Core (MC) - which gives it better processing abilities than the AMD Ryzen 7 2700U.

 

The graphics card is similarly better - in fact it has a +192% Effective 3D Speed:

Hey, I just got this as a birthday present, what sort of speed do you think I could run fm 19 at? I don’t think it’s great but I’m not tech savvy..

 

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Acer-Aspire-3-A315-21-A6-9220-Radeon-R4-Laptop-Review.262586.0.html

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news on your birthday - the CPU in that is an entry level processor. 

I'd expect to manage a small amount of leagues, and a small to medium database. 

Graphics wise - 2d would be best - but you could try 3D on low detail levels. 

All in all - download the trial/demo and give it a go.

Thanks for that! What would you recommend for say 12 leagues 5 countries, large database, running smoothly? 2d matches

Greetings Smurf,

I bought the Acer Nitro 5 with the following specs:

Intel Core i7 (8. generasjon) 8750H / 2.2 GHz
6 cores - 4.1 GHz

16GB RAM
512GB SSD

NVidia GeForce GTX 1060
6GB GDDR5 SDRAM

I didn't buy it for FM purposes, but I assume this will run a lot of leagues in good quality?

There's no way to know how many leagues/database size any computer will run. 

Technically, you could load that many on the computer you have, but would you be happy with how fast the game progresses day to day? Only you can answer that.

Typically, I'd expect a mid-range processor to be capable of what you describe, at the moment you're at entry level.

Hi,

Budget of £500-£650

Found this when looking through comments above - https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-nitro-5-15-6-intel-core-i5-gtx-1050-gaming-laptop-1-tb-hdd-10181374-pdt.html

I mainly run 2D (not a fan of 3D) but will probably use 3D replays from time to time.

Also, is it worth waiting for Black Friday to save £££?

Thanks

Pretty good machine. 

Maybe black friday will yield some bargains - won't know until then though :)

Should run - not the best and a bit old - but should be ok. 

More RAM would be better - an extra 4gb would improve performance

Graphics - 3d would struggle - low detail if you are using - or play with 2d pitch.
