Laptop Suggestions

Recommended Posts

hi

 

i have a desktop computer with 

 

i7950

GTX 580

 

i want to have a laptop that is still quite powerfull to run fsx nicely with PMDG 777, because a desktop computer takes too much space. I now that i'll be sacrifing some performance if I by a new laptop instead of a new desktop computer...

 

What do you think of this one :

Do you think that I can have better FPS compared to my current desktop computer ?  I think yes because fsx doesn't use much the GPU, my gtx doesn't go above 45%, but my CPu is always at 100%

 

thanks

You want to run FSX and PMDG? Simple, don't get a laptop. I have tried and failed with so called "portable desktops" from Sager/Origin. Trust me, it's not worth it. It's true FSX doesn't get most of it's power from the GPU, but mobile GPUs really hold back FSX.

 

If it's a space issue, get a smaller PC. Stay away from laptops or fly FS9.
