I am currently using a Dell Insprion 8200 from 4 years ago, with 1 gig of RAM, 64mb NVIDIA card, and a 1.9ghz processor. I still runs beautifully (in spite of the addons I run), but I am certainly looking forward to my upgrade after VISTA and FSX come out!

i bought a new laptop recently, with a small screen 13". I bought it mainly to take around with me to put my photo's on etc as my home pc runs fs, but i thought, hey i will try flight sim on it so i can fly when i travel. It has 128mb ram for video but it is built in, 512mb ram, 1.7gig processor, and it runs amazingly!!

Love that laptop!!

I use a laptop but its a pretty good laptop to be fair

2.8 GHZ Pentium Celeron
512MB RAM

Ive got a 15" monitor.

It runs great unless I use any scenery add-ons, then it gets a bit jumpy.

my 2.4ghz celeron 512 ram has trouble running full screen (gets jumpy) but otherwise its all good 😉

I use a desktop now (eMachines T6212 with good gaming modifications)

..but years back i went on a vacation to Hawaii (i was pretty young at the time) .. and i brought along my dad's laptop, which had FS98 on it (oh.. the good old days, lol)

the flight attendant told me to mute the game or turn it off because the alarms and such in the sim cockpit scared a passenger behind me. LOL

LOL was fs98 any good? ive looked at screenshots and it looks like a typical 1998 game 😛

FS '98 had a 'Land me now' option that would look for the closest airfield and put you in a spin regardless of your altitude and land you -- in most cases. All you had to do was sit back and watch the fun 😀

hopefully if i get a 10" notebook i'll be able to run fs on low-ish settings 😀 due to the screen being so small i don't think it would matter.

for it's time... FS98 was "as real as it gets". and yes, it was a good game, especially with those add-on sceneries. ... mmmm, memories. 😀
