Hi, I've played football manager from the early days but been out since 2011. I've decided to buy a laptop that will hopefully cope with FM2013 or what's left of it and hopefully be capable of running FM2014. My 1st choice is:
Lenovo AMD quad-core A8-4500m accelerated processor. 1.9GHz to 2.8GHz in turbo mode. 8GB DDR3 with 1 hdd. Windows8 home premium 64-bit.
Graphics: AMD Radeon 7640g. 256 core graphics processor, 512Mb dedicated with available 3GB memory.

My 2nd choice is: Asus Intel core i5-3210m Dual core (2.5GHz, Intel ivy bridge architecture, 3mb cache, Intel turbo body up to 3.1GHz).
6GB DDR3, 500GB Hdd. Windows 8 64-bit.
Graphics: Intel HD 4000, up to 1274Mb shared memory.

Thanks in advance
