Processor advice

Hi,

I'm looking to get a decent laptop (up to say 1300)...

I'd been thinking of something like a Sony VPC-F13X5E but wondered if people could help.

Is there something in a similar class they'd recommend as drastically better?

What is the practical difference between an i5-560M 2.66 ghz 3mb L3 cache, and an i7-740M 1.73 ghz quad core 6mb L2/L3 cache?

Also, what is the practical difference between a 6 GB 1066MHz DDR3-SDRAM 1 x 4096 MB + 1 x 2048 MB, and a 8 GB 1333MHz DDR3-SDRAM 2 x 4096 MB - ie is the latter worth an extra £130 or so?


Thanks for any help, its much appreciated!

PS, this is largely (don't laugh!) for use for Football Manager game, which is very heavy to run, but light on graphics, but I also want to be able to buy other games for a couple of years without nit-picking the minimum specs!


cheers
