  [DELETED] 07:56 23 Feb 2010

hi there guys

I've been looking at laptops recently, but I just couldn't find the perfect on as I don't know much about laptops.

Basically it would be great if you can find a laptop from pcworld,argos etc

I just want a laptop which has 4GB and 320-500Hard Drive, and that can run 1 game which is football manager 2010.I have a budget of 400-450.

Thanks in Advance.

The choice of suitable ones for what you want to do in that price range is considerable. If you want to check reliability etc, I suggest you check with Which? You can have a free trial.

Your call, of course, but the Samsung seems to have a 3 yr warranty and battery life is better.

"which one guys?"

Neither of them, as they both have integrated graphics (GPUs).

Laptop GPUs are harder to recommend than desktop, but you should get a better answer at a dedicated FM forum like click here.

They've posted system requirements click here, but info on laptop GPUs is vague.

And strangely, this thread click here asking for help about laptops specs, doesn't mention anything about its GPU, but everybody says the laptop will be fine!?

Here are some laptop GPU benchmarks click here, click here & click here. No mention of FM2010, but with the info you will hopefully avoid the lowest cards. And as I said before, an integrated/onboard GPU is one you would definitely want to avoid. G
