Don't Have 800/900 Update? Why Not?

Sadly I am one such person. The reason I do not own the 8/900 is because of a death in my family and then upon returning my bank really made a mess of my finances so I had to close the accounts, now I am in the process of finding another bank worthy of my business, after that is all set up I will purchase the 8/900. I feel naked, I feel sub human, I feel behind the times, am I even worthy to post here? Please Mr. Randazzo don't delete my post, really I am a good customer! :-lol I promise to buy it soon! I'll tell you though I am suffering everytime I read this forum and hear about the wonderful 8/900 package!Philip Olsonhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

I am yet to upgrade to the 800/900 model. Cost is not the issue, it is simply a matter that with my work I am travelling very often. I run everything off my laptop and its a work machine and not overly FS friendly. Purchasing the new model will come with my laptop upgrade.Skip

Cost is the issue for me. Within the last couple of months I have purchased ActiveSky 2004, FSUIPC, and Ultimate Traffic along with the 600/700. I had to draw the line somewhere. It may become a birthday gift in August or a Christmas gift for myself.I forgot to mention I purchased FSBuild also, but I can't remember if that was early this year or late last year.

Samuel,I'm hoping the 747 will be released on CD.If it isn't, I'm off round to PMDG with my new friend Bob the Baseball Bat!If it only comes via download, then a beautiful relationship will come to an end.Tim

Cost- I have been spending every cent on my flight training, the 737-600/700 was a gift from mom. But now that I passed my checkride (Yesterday! :) ), I may be buying it soon.

Brandon: Congratulations on the PPL checkride!! It's an elite group you are joining and gets more elite from there. Can't say I'm a member but I sure respect those who have gone through this. Many happy flights.

I'm very new to the NG, and still tackling the learning curve. Once I begin to feel as comfortable with my 737-700 as I do with the other planes I fly regularly, I'll be back here looking for justification for getting the 800/900.-- Dave

I haven't gotten the 800/900 update yet because I can't afford the bucks to upgrade both my RAM and operating system. I'm still using Windows ME and 256Mb of RAM. The 600/700 works well with FS2002 and my system. I get quirks trying to use the PMDG 600/700 with FS2004.The 600/700 is such a blast to use on FS2002 that I am not feeling deprived by not having the update.I bought FS2002 just so I could buy the PMDG 737 product. I had FLY! II and the PMDG 777 and 757 products. When I got MS Flight Simulator, I started flying 60% more -- easily.I suppose I'll bite the bullet when the 747 comes out and upgrade my system. I have too much fun with these PMDG products to sit on the sidelines too long.Jim Liebenstein

I have not yet switched to FS 2004 due to all the add on sceneries and PSS Airbus. And I am still enjoying learning the 737 600/700, if I thought I could get it to run in FS 2002 I'd purchase it ASAP. :-) Chuck

Hey,Haven't bought it because i dont really fly the -800 and 900, especially as BA dont have them....so they're not an option in BAV for it.Also i'm waiting for the 744, because i'm sure thats gonna rock and will be really worth it!Henry

I just have been too busy- all of 10 minutes of simming or home computer time at all, in the past month. Part of it is due to my current system dying, but I just ordered the components for a replacement. :) I even picked up a 19" monitor last night.I'll get the update when the new system is complete (look slike next week!)Tim

I'm still hobbling about with FS2002 as is Helodrvr and Jim L. Just a curious question for them did you have any problems closing FS2002 after using the 600 or 700?
