It won't not run, it will run well

I would honestly look at getting a quad core rather! i5 is fantastic!
I have that laptop but never thought it would run FM very good

The laptop i used is now officially dead :(

Time to buy FM 13 lol
never said very good, I said it would run it :)

I have i3 and 4gb RAM (my work pc) no graphics card (my GPU bust out a few months ago) and I run over 20 nations perfectly fine :)
as long as it will run haven't played FM in months and i'm missing it

20 nations is a lot i usually only run England France Germany Italy Scotland and Spain 14 leagues
