3 Cheap Laptop Computers for playing Football Manager 2017

With the release of Football Manager 2017 it is time to buy the game, and it is time for many people to upgrade their old computers with new components in order to run FM17 with maximum detail.

Football Manager is the typical game that a lot of people like to play whenever they have some free time. However, free time is something hard to get these days. And because of that, many people choose to buy laptops due to its portability which makes it possible to play anywhere such as universities, cafes, public and private transports, among other locations…

This year was introduced the 64-bit version on Football Manager 2017 which means that the game will run more fluidly if you have a system with a high amount of memory ram. In previous versions of FM there was only the 32-bit version which means that the computer would never use more than 4gb of ram due to the limitation imposed by the system(s) or game(s) that only allow the use of 32 bits.

As a result, we decided to review some of the best laptops available in the market to play FM 2017. For this, we took into account two main factors: quality and price. All computers revealed here are quite cheap and are of good quality, and allow you to enjoy the FM17 to the fullest.

Keep in mind that to play Football Manager you do not need a powerful computer. Instead of other games, FM is a very accessible game in terms of system requirements.

Also is appropriate to point out that we do not have any relationship with any of the laptop brands that we recommend.
