pmdg and laptops

Recommended Posts

Guest Bjorn Ghezzi

I just wanted to have some feedback. I just bought a laptop for study purposes and I'll be getting it in about a week time, so I'll be away from my desktop for a few months. It's a centrino 1.5Ghz with 512mb of ram.I wanted to know if with such a computer it would still be possible to have the pmdg 737 and fs2004 running, just to play around with it a little, without bothering to install any sceneries etc.If not, at least the 737 600/700 version with fs2002, would that possibly work?Thanks.Regards,Bjorn

Thank you for your feedback, when I'll get I'll see...as you say the video card might be the area of concern, it's a radeon ATI 7500 32mb...but even if I have to use the -600/700 with fs2002 I'll be happy anyway.:-)Take care.Regards,Bjorn

I run PMDG with FS2004 on a Thinkpad X30 with 1.2 Ghz and 1 GB of RAM. I run all sorts of scenery, Ultimate Traffic, and various add-ons. I can do everything, including the 3-D cockpit with PMDG. At certain points I do get slow framerates (< 10) and have to also wait for the laptop to catch up scenery-wise when flying. But I can do all the learning I want, interact with ATC, track flight using third-party tool, etc. So everything runs and I enjoy being able to fly, etc. while traveling. Joe

Thank you very much guys for all your feedback,this is looking brighter than I thought! :-)I guess I'm looking forward to enjoying the PMDG on the road, who knows, maybe it will be even better than on the desktop pc.:-)Regards,Bjorn
