Hey all.. looking to get back in the game after a few years out and need to know running specs for fm19.

Will be purchasing a laptop or surface pro type device for playing but wanting to know if 8mb or 16mb ram is ideally needed...

For clarity.. like to start at conference north and add In all players of European descent, Mid America, South America as a minimum plus have all of taly, Spain, Germany, England as loaded leagues

Don't mind some loading time (20 mins end of season) as example but not loads..

Any help welcome and as a stretch.. a cheap target to aim for 😁

If your budget is in the Surface Pro market then get the best processor you can - not a Surface pro. 

See the opening post of the thread for some tips to spot the best computer you can.

I’m after a new laptop for family use but also good enough to play fm. I’m at a loss with all this processor, ram and hard drive talk. I’ve seen a few laptops suggested on here and a bit over my budget of around £400. I’m used to having Acer Aspire laptops. Are there any that someone could recommend please?

For your budget probably the best you can get https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GNVEK.018-Acer-Aspire-3-A315-21-94CH_2335983.html

Luckily, it's an Acer Aspire.  See the opening post in regards to lowering your expectations for FM.

An gtx 1060 6gb and either:

 Samsung 32” WQHD LED Monitor (S32D850T) 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L3KNOF4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

or

 

Philips 328B6QJEB 32” LCD Monitor, IPS Panel, 2560 x1440

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CLMDH3L/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

(both pivot to portrait mode which I normally use)

Not sure how the game will be in portrait mode of the monitor.

What letter should It be after the processor number H or HQ or something else ?

Typically, the intel processors with an 8th gen then a H, with 7th gen it's down as HQ. 

So you'd look for i5 or i7 - 8xxxH or i5 or i7 7xxxHQ

Ones to avoid - T, U

Really good - x or k

There are others ones but that's the basics.

which is the better deal for fm? (if any of those two could run it)... one is an Intel option the other an AMD

Am after portability, would those graphics cards/laptop handle FM using 3d with say 3/4 leagues 10+ divisions and the 3d match engine of fm19?

Thanks for any advice

I wouldn’t run the game in portrait mode, that’s just the reason those are the options as opposed to others people might recommend or as just a smaller 1080p monitor.  I work in portrait mode but pivot back to horizontal for normal applications.  So I’d be running FM19 horizontally at 2560x1440.

This is better than the HP one you linked to https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=4AN69EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB

Quite a difference in price range with the AO one - what is your budget

So then one you suggested is better? 

I just took a 2nd look and the processor is noted as being a I5-7200UY - and I cannot find that model anywhere, I presume it's a typo, given it had a "Y" extension on the laptop number I thought it was geared for ultraslim notebooks, which doesn't seem to b the case, as it appears to be a typo on the website. 

If it is a typo - then the 7200U would be a better option than what I suggested. 

Sorry for the bum steer - but the typo their website threw me!

Hi Smurf

Budget is £800, but I would prefer to spend around £600-700 to be honest, with portability the main criteria, whilst playing 3-5 Leagues etc)

I have been used to playing on a MacBook Air 11.6 inch (2014 Version) so am keen to have a bit more screen size, processing power etc... with watching 3d matches in low to medium detail, being a bonus

With the above In mind, what is the best pound for pound laptop do you think. (value for money)

Is this any good?

This is the ideal, I know, but I just would prefer something a little cheaper.

Hiya Smurf,

 

Apologies - I've already commented on this and I really appreciate your advice. I popped into Curry's after work today to see if they have any decent deals - it doesn't look like they do tbf. My budget is £600, although I am willing to go a bit over it. These are the ones I've found:

https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GP8EK.003-Acer-Aspire-7-A715-71G-57YT_2156569.html

https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16J962-2073-MSI-GL62M-7RDX-2073UK_2245212.html

You told me previously it should be between the first 2. The thing is, I had an Acer before which only lasted 3 years (although tbf this was probably due to poor maintenance). In terms of MSI I have heard mixed reviews about them. Moreover, I'm always quite sceptical about buying from online retailers as I'm unsure on their warranty and procedure for if e.g. I have some hardware problems that I can't fix. 

 

So a few questions I hope you don't mind answering:

1. Which of the above laptops are the best value for money?

2. What is better - an i5HQ processor or i7U processor?

3. Is it worth getting a gaming laptop even though I will probably only be playing Football Manager?

4. If I were to get a laptop with just SSD (like the Acer Aspire 7 one), how easy would it be to buy an HDD later on if/when I need it and use that as well?

5. What is faster in general - SSD or SSD and HDD? 

 

P.S. I've recently found this one:

https://www.ebuyer.com/862353-msi-gp62m-7rd-leopard-gaming-laptop-9s7-16j972-425?wgu=267255_56573_15429252100427_525647820c&wgexpiry=1550701210&utm_source=webgains&utm_siteid=56573

It's a bit out of budget, I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend £700 on a laptop. In my experience the ones that I've owned have only lasted for 3-4 years. I'm just quite sceptical when it comes to spending so much. Is this worth the extra £50 for an i7 processor and 16 GB RAM?

2 i5 hq

3 Probably 

4 Easy enough

5 SSD is faster  - but has little impact for FM.

Wonder if you can help me out. I currently have a Sony Vaio that is 6 years old. Current basic specs are: Intel core I7 3612 QM @ 2.1ghz, AMD Radeon graphics MSeries HD 7500. Windows 10 64 bit, Full HD, BD Drive, 8 GB ram, with a 750GB HDD. 

If I was to get an equivalent laptop today? what would I be looking at for a best deal and price? If I say my budget is around £750.. that's what I paid 6 years ago for this machine. 

 

Just to add, I use this laptop mainly for FM, but I also play Flight Sim occasionally and ETS2.

Hi Smurf

What do you make of this one...

https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/msi-gl73-8rd-core-i7-8750h-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gtx-150ti-17.3-inch-9s7-17c612-043/version.asp

It's a little more expensive than I was initially wanting to pay, was originally looking to spend £700-odd, only really want it for FM and then general things such as web browsing, word, excel, etc. I have seen a few other laptops which are cheaper but then they only have i5 processors. This comes with what to me, looks like a good i7 processor and 17" screen which for me is a good thing, my old laptop was 17" (although I wouldn't rule out  15") and portability isn't particularly important to me.

Feel free to recommend anything else you may think is suitable, the way i'm thinking at the moment is I don't mind upping my budget into the £800s if the improved processor is worth it.

Looking at buying a new laptop with the budget around £400 (old one got fried with a misplaced pint)

 

any from this page look any good? Prefer to get one during today as cheaper 

 

FM is the only thing I need it for

I'd definitely go with the first one, as the processor is better not just on single core (which most of FM works on) but it has more cores in total which is good for games that utilise multiple cores, so it'll be better for general gaming too.

Best I can find - both identical specs.

Hi. @Smurf firstly I just want to say that I have been following this thread (as well as the previous one) for around 2 months now and the effort you and the other guys put into it is incredible and very much appreciated. I have learned so much over that time and because of the advise given out by all of you I now feel confident enough to finally go out and purchase a replacement for my broken laptop. I have found 2 which I think would be good and just wondered if I could get a little advice on helping make a final decision please? The top laptop looks to be the better laptop. The 1 below still looks pretty good for fm 19 but has been reduced to a really good price in my opinion so I guess my question is would there be much of a difference performance wise between them for FM? Or would they both run the game at a similar level/speed? I'm just thinking that if they both run the game at the same level/speed or at least close enough to not really notice a difference I could save myself £150. There is also the question of future proofing with the top 1. Would the extra £150 get me a laptop that will potentially last longer due to the better specs?

I am looking to play between 5 and 10 leagues and always watch my games in 3d mode. Any advice on this would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Both are very similar. The i7 has more cores and i would to check out the difference in single core performance. But id be confident theyre similar.

But if your budget is that high i will take a look later. Sitting down with family for a Sunday roast!!! Back soon!

That would be great thank you! I think I am going to have to get one on finance which is why there is a big difference in price. Ideally I just want a laptop that will run FM to a good standard that I won't have to replace for a good while. Enjoy the Sunday roast!!!! 😁
