New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

Recommended Posts

So finally ordered my laptop tonight which is coming Saturday. I ordered the below from Save On Laptops:

http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-179553-626-MSI-GP72-6QF(Leopard-Pro)-626UK_1984222.html

Anyone bought from this company before? I have read a few reviews on Trust Pilot whilst the majority are good, there are quite a few people who have complained about them, especially their after sales service when there has been problems.

I ordered from here as its by far the cheapest price I have seen for a 17" laptop with the specs its got and you get an upgrade to 16GB of RAM.

 

I've never had issue with them.. they can be slow to reply occasionally but I have bought several laptops from them and have been pleased each time.

Probably something to note in here...

Black friday and sales are coming up so prices are likely to drop and there are likely to be deals up for grabs... worth considering before buying.

Im going to wait, on black Friday will you be able to post the best couple of deals etc?

Nice enough laptop, but the price is awful... it's way overpriced...

 

Especially considering this has dropped in price recently ish ..:

Im looking to get this model too, just seeing if the price comes down for Black Friday. Could you let me know how you get on with it and how it runs FM?

hi mate,

Well I took the delivery yesterday and I have set it all up and I have been playing FM for pretty much the whole day today and it runs like a dream. Only have 6 leagues loaded and medium database but handles everything I can throw at it presently. 3D works great and I can play on high detail without any problems.

If you have any other questions just ask :)

Any chance you can put a short video up? Showing how fast it goes through and the 3d match engine etc! Cheers

It's not great. I suspect it has no dedicated graphics card either, which will make 3D a bit rubbish.

You can get much better for c.£500

What would you recommend for £600? Would some that plays 10 leagues and 3D fast?

Im not sure about specific league speed, you're best asking Welshace tbh. Is £600 your absolute maximum?

FM is very processor based, so try to get an i7 quad core 6700HQ.

This is more than enough if you can stretch to £750:

Im unsure what to do because of black friday! I'd be gutted if I pay 600 then they drop it too 500 haha plus I don't know if it'll play 3d in high detail.

To to honest, I couldn't see the price dropping any lower. 

As for the graphics, I'm not overly fussed and wasn't prepared to spend another £200+ just for the sake of graphics.

That graphics card should handle 3D on high.  My integrated card handles it on medium, so you should have no worries.

I'm waiting until Black Friday myself, there's no rush for me as enjoying the game in 2D for the time being.

So this should be really good and handle football manager 2017 easy? I'm not fussed about playing any other game!

Will do. 

Unrelated to the content of this thread but I'll ask it anyway; what's the best way of purchasing the game?

Online - is it straightforward enough?

Purchase the disc?

I'm presuming FM17 needs to be played through steam?

Steam is by far the easiest and it updates automatically too.  I believe you need Steam, yes.

@Elliott J Miller My current laptop is substantially lower in spec and handles it fine for me.  It's not lightening quick but it's not painfully slow.  I would expect the one above to run 10 leagues without much problem, but obviously the more detail you add the slower it will get.  You're best asking @Welshace for advice on specific performance in terms of leagues and detail.

Thought you'd be happy to know this model has gone up to £949 :(:D 

Probably come back down for BF so they can say it's on offer.

Some good 'uns there @Welshace

I like the idea of a white laptop but it'd be filthy after about a week :D

Hopefully Black Friday throws up some corkers.

Personally I wouldn't.. literally no feedback, based in germany, and the price point is too cheap... but who knows, might be worth emailing them and talking to them.

Budget of around £800.

I'm looking for something that I can play FM with 3d graphics on high, run about 10 full countries with about 90,000 players comfortably.

There are several that meet your specs right here in the last two pages...
