New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a budget of £500-600,

I recently purchased this laptop and it was faulty so i'm taking it back, i didn't really like the feel of it and i don't wanna mess around and replace it and get the same brand.

Firstly, would this have been good enough to run FM? Essentially all i'm fussed about is having a good enough processor to manage in an English lower league database.

If it is could you please recommend a laptop with similar specs? If not could you please recommend a better one within my budget?

 

Thanks

It's out of stock and it's not great - I think this would be better

I found this one

Seems like it would do the trick - but if other exeperienced users on the forum wouldn't mind weighing in on it.

Hi, I got the below laptop for £550 in sale however unfortunately after being sent off for repair has suffered another issue all within 3 months. Frustratingly it played FM19 very well for my needs - 4.5/5 * running top 4 leagues in Eng and top league in 5 other nations with 3* for graphics no issues on High settings.
Although I could get an exchange I don't trust the laptop but unfortunately I can't find anything near the specs I currently have for the money I would get for an exchange (£550).
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Current laptop

It should be under warranty and if it can't be repaired it should be replaced like for like.

Hi Smurf,

First of all, appreciate all the time you put into this thread. I'm in dire need of an upgrade but don't want to break the bank. I've noticed 2 laptop come on sale as part of the 'black Friday' and wanted your opinion on both and how they will handle Football Manager 2019. 

They seem to both be the same apart from the processor, are these good enough + is it worth the extra hundred for the better processor?

Or does the below blow both out of the water?

Also, found https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/A556UQ-DM1469T-ASUS-Vivobook-A556UQ-DM1469T_2255403.html would this be good for FM? 

Thanks

Hi Smurf,

I have been looking for a cheap laptop purely to run FM on for a few weeks now. Unfortunately cant find anything in my price range that meets the requirements. I have however been offered a used laptop for £200 with the below specs:

Processor - Intel Core i5-5200U 
CPU - 2.20 GHz
RAM - 8GB
System type - 64 bit
OS - Windows 10 Pro

I think I am going to struggle to find another laptop with these specs at this price so most likely going to purchase.

Just wanted your opinion on 1) If you think the next FM game will require higher CPU as this laptop is only at the min spec and 2) If you think there is anything on the market that would be more worthwhile purchasing for maybe an additional £100 or so ? Or if this laptop is good value for money.

With the forum's thanks to @Smurf and many of the other regulars who have supported this thread for 6 years, I think it is time to move on to a new thread, which has now been opened and will be highlighted in the General Discussion forum.

Any posters who have not had their question answered, please repost in the new thread so that it can be traced in there.
