Judging by the performance specs, I would say very VERY poor... Even machines like mine and similar struggle with FSX when loaded with addons. Vanilla FSX runs well. But who wants a vanilla FSX?

My son owns one. The CPU just isn't powerful enough for FSX. It's a decent laptop for GPU-bound games, but doesn't have the processing muscle to deal with FSX.

I agree, you need to be in the 3Ghz+ range for FSX.

Thank you for your replies, I didn't have my hopes up but was hoping someone had practical experience. You can overclock the dual core processor easily to 1.7Ghz and it also has 4gb RAM and the 1gb graphics card supports DX10 so I suppose I was hoping for better than Very Poor!! I just wanted something portable that would be pretty good for when I am away with work.
