its easier to run a second monitor than a second computer.If your current video card allows 2 monitors, just plugin yuor second monitor, and off you go. But second monitor will reduce your frame rates a bit if you want to use it to display gauges and fs commander etc.Second monitor will reduce your frame rates a lot if you want to use it to display another fsx view.If you want to run other fsx programs on your laptop hopwever, then you have to read the manual for each program like fscommander asa etc, each manual has instructions for setting up simconnect that allows multiple fsx computer setup.
