Default Re: The end of Microsoft flight sims?

I've flown around the world in simulation. Manaul control all the way up to and down from cruising altitude. The only time I'm using autopilot is when I'm crusing, and I'll speed it all up then two. Its pretty fun.

I was thinking about buying Flight Simulator X. Guess I won't now. I have a laptop with onboard video, a lousy 1.7GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM.

I've played most of the other flight simulators but not X yet. Will I even be able to run it on low settings with this P.O.S?

It should run. I got it to run on my older computer which was a Pentium 4 and had integrated graphics. You should be able to run it.

I'm mad Microsoft is ending the flight simulator series. It was my favorite microsoft product, I've played all of them since 95 and they always get better. FSX is pretty intense though, the graphics are amazing and I'm not exactly sure how they could top that. Still I hope there's a chance of them doing something new in a few years.
