Not only is Black Friday and Christmas looming closer; so is FM21 launch day. As our promotion to get FM21 for just £29.99 is ending soon, you may be worried that your laptop may not be up to the task of the new game. Thankfully, I’m a massive nerd who is here to help. I have found a specific laptop which should run FM21 like a dream, and is quite affordable so without further ado; here it is:
The Best Laptop For Football Manager 2021
This is the Dell Inspiron 15 3000 15.6 Inch Laptop. A well-rounded mid-tier laptop perfect for FM21. It has an AMD Ryzen-5 processor with Radeon Vega 8 Graphics alongside a 256 GB SSD. If that just sounds like a bunch of made-up words, what this means is the processor (the AMD Ryzen-5) is catered far better for gaming than the processors most laptops use; Intel. So, this means that when you play FM21, you will be able to load more leagues, and faster. This is also supported by a 256 GB SSD. Solid State Drives are generally much faster than laptops which use HDD and you should try to find laptops with these built-in. It also comes with the Radeon Vega 8 graphics card. This is an integrated graphics card used in lots of notebooks which, while it may not be top of the range, enables relatively strong graphics for a laptop of this price.
So, onto the price, this laptop retails in the UK at around £499.99 and is currently in stock on Amazon.
The 1080p 15.6 inch screen also makes it nice and large for your games and runs in full HD. It also comes with a HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 2.0 port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. It also weighs in at just 2kg making it nice and portable for most laptops of this size. It runs Windows 10 as standard; the operating system everybody knows and loves and is well worth considering as your new laptop for FM21.
Overall, I believe this is a solid, well-rounded laptop for most users who are looking for something fresh for FM21. I have also included a list of honourable mentions of various budgets below:

Will the ASUS VivoBook M413DA 14 Inch Full HD Laptop (AMD Ryzen 7 3700U, 8 GB RAM, 512 GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, Windows 10), Includes reversible USB 3.2 Type-C port, that you suggested have good graphics for football manager 2021 ? Smooth gameplay is what I’m looking for, for football manager 2021.
Yes it should do – it has one of the best graphics cards at this price range and should handle most match engine formats consistently well
Will the (HP 14s-dq1505sa Laptop – Intel® Core i7, Intel Iris plus graphics, 8gb Ram, 512 GB SSD) run FM 2021 because I am looking for a laptop for university but I also want to play fm on it.
However, I heard that’s the fm touch version is coming to Xbox one so I was thinking on waiting until that comes out.
Yes that laptop will be absolutely fine for FM21.
It has been confirmed an Xbox version of FM21 is coming in December available on Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X. Details are expected in the next week or two about this version but it is expected to be similar to the Touch version.
Is the touch version similar to the full version and is there much difference?
