Sorry for asking something that’s probably been done to death. I didn’t have FM21 due to my laptop breaking but today I’ve ordered a new one. I’m not clued up on the terminology but think what I’ve bought is sufficient to run the game. Advice would be welcome:

HP pavilion 14
Intel core i7
Storage: 512gb ssd
RAM: 16 gb


thanks in advance
Yes, it's sufficient to run the game.

I highly recommend our new laptop advice article for some very useful info on the matter.

btw. I've actually checked this Pavilion 14 and I saw that version with i7 is a 'G' version, so it's just 4 threads CPU, maybe it would be worth adding that G versions are similar to U?

Usually most powerful CPU would have H or X letter at the end, when the begining of name like i3, i5, i7 suggest you levels or performance itself.

so i7 with H on end will be most powerful
but i7 with G will be on same level as i5 with H letter
Hmm, I did some more research on Intel CPU suffixes. Found this (scroll to Processor Suffixes, a bit after the middle of page).

Suffix | Meaning
G1-G7 | Graphics level (processors with new integrated graphics technology only)
E | Embedded
F | Requires discrete graphics
G | Includes discrete graphics on package
H | High performance optimized for mobile
HK | High performance optimized for mobile, unlocked
HQ | High performance optimized for mobile, quad core
K | Unlocked
S | Special edition
T | Power-optimized lifestyle
U | Mobile power efficient
Y | Mobile extremely low power
X/XE | Unlocked, High End
B | Ball Grid Array (BGA)
