Lenovo Y500 laptop for FSX ?

Recommended Posts

HI guys,

 

This is my first post on the AVSIM forums. I am not really sure if this is the right place or should this post be in the FSX forums?

 

I am planning to buy a laptop next week and I will be using it for my study (software engineering) and FSX

 

My question is can I run FSX with reasonable tweaks on it ? I will not be using payware aircraft but would like to use custom AI and payware sceneries such as FlyTampa and Aerosoft.

Custom AI would be AI models from TFS, AIA, FAIB etc... And I will be compiling flightplans with AI Flight Planner.

 

And what is the equivalent percentage value of FS9 100% air traffic in FSX ?

 

The laptop has the following specs:

 

Lenovo IdeaPad Y Series Y500-00619-NL
15,6",
Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost to 3.4 GHZ
8GB RAM DDR3 1600 MHz
1TB, 
GeForce GT750M 2GB DDR5
BD-DVD Drive
 
The BD-DVD drive is swap able, and I will swap it with a Samsung 840 128 GB SSD drive.

You will be OK with FSX and that laptop, but be careful with the sliders!

This I dont know, never had FS9:

"And what is the equivalent percentage value of FS9 100% air traffic in FSX ?"

IMO the default AI (and airport vehicles, cars)  in FSX will hit the FPS hard, so be conservative with the settings.

 

Good luck...
