I've been running FSX on my MacBook Pro (2.4GHz version) and I'm very happy with it. I've installed FSX on an external firewire 800 based hard drive since I didn't want to use up all my laptop disk space with scenery and aircraft. As far as I can tell, this is also working fine. I think there are a few other people on this forum who are running FSX on a Mac via bootcamp so hopefully they will give you their views as well.RegardsDavid

FSX runs well with 2GB RAM, 2+GHz multi-core CPU and a 512MB GPU, so FSX will probably run at your laptop, but you want to turn down your sliders to "Medium-Low" to "Low" in order to get acceptable performance.I am curious to know how it worked out for you.Good luck!Pat
