FSX on a laptop?

Recommended Posts

So, sadly my good old trusty computer decided to die a terrible death, two weeks before PMDG NGX's release. :/ So anyway, since I'm also starting a new education I decided to buy a new laptop, instead of a 'real' computer. ASUS N53S CPU: Intel i7-2630QM Sandy BridgeRam: 8 GBHDD: 640 GH 5400RPMGFX: Nvidia GT 550M 2 GBOS: Win7 64bit I'm hoping to be able to run it at medium settings with just the PMDG NGX. (I want the NGX to be at highest details, the landscape doesnt matter. Hell, if I need to set the AI traffic to 0% then I'll do it.) Any thought? Will my Laptop survive or crash and burn? :/ Love, Philip.

I think you will be OK, but the HDD worries me a bit, it´s not a 7200 RPM. My Asus G73JH with i7 920XM, AMD 5870, 6 Gb 1333 Mhz Ram, 500 Gb Momentus XT Hybrid HDD, runs FSX very good on medium high settings. Here´s a good source for info./tweaks etc. on Asus Notebooks: http://forum.notebookreview.com/asus/ Use this for tuning and setting up FSX: http://www.simforums.com/Forums/topic34141_post198187.html#198187 - and this one when you are done with the above: http://www.venetubo.com/fsx.html Good luck!

Thanks a lot! Yes I know it's not 7200, and it annoys me. But I didn't want to pay anymore. :)
