FSX on Mac computers?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who used to play FS 2002 on a Windows computer.  He is interested in getting back to flying again but now owns a Mac.  I know it is possible to install Windows in a separate partition in a Mac computer.  However I would like to know how well FSX runs on a Mac compared to a regular Windows computer.  Thank you in advance for any input.

As far as I know, he will have to have a bootcamp version of Windows on his MAC.  As long as he has room on the HDD and a fast CPU, it should run OK.

Cheers.  I don't know my friend's Mac computer yet, but I would be interested in others' experience what the CPU expectation would be for the sim to run mostly smoothly with high settings.  I assume a 3.5 GHz Mac processor would not necessarily be able to run FSX at the same level as a PC that happens to use the same processor, but I hope I am wrong.
