Need help choosing between these laptops

  Klopp_1996 18:39 23 Nov 2018

Hello all,

I've had my current laptop for over 4 years now and I'm looking for a change. My budget is £600, although I am willing to go a bit over. I mainly use it for watching videos and Netflix, and playing Football Manager. If I get a gaming laptop I may choose to play other games as well. There are three that I have my eye on at the moment:

HP OMEN 15-ce001na from SaveOnLaptops

MSI GL62M 7RDX-2073UK from SaveOnLaptops

ACER Nitro 5 15.6" Intel® Core™ i5+ GTX 1050 Gaming Laptop - 1 TB, Black from Currys

(Unable to post links as it's detected as spam).

I have asked several of my friends who fancy themselves as techies but they have all given me different answers. More people have told me that the last Acer one is the best, but I would preferably like an SSD which is the only thing putting me off. This isn't important for Football Manager but I know that it performs better overall. The fact that it's a Black Friday deal is pulling me towards it more as well.

I've been told that the main thing you need to look out for when choosing a laptop for Football Manager is the processor.

I'd appreciate any help I could get. Choosing and buying a laptop has always been an exciting thing for me in the past, but it's stressing me out at the moment. If you can find anything else within my budget that you'd suggest over my options then feel free to share it. Cheers!

I'm not necessarily looking for a gaming laptop. Just something that can run the next few Football Managers smoothly.
