    Since Flight Simulator 2004 is an older game does anyone know if I can install it in Windows via Bootcamp and play it without much issues on my Macbook (1GB Ram, 2.0GHz)? Thanks

    GMA 950 is going to be a big big handicap. Its a poor excuse for a gpu. Plus it cant do a lot of things meaning you will have to turn everything off and way down. Pretty sad really is. I just had the Mini with the same gpu and its just crap. pure crap.

    Sure, you could install it. The GMA 950 isn't going to be as big a handicap as DHM might tell you - it's okay, as long as you turn the graphics options down.

    I have it installed on my macbook. I lock at 20fps and I get that 90% of the time. My detail levels are on low to medium and I get blurry textures, but I can fly.

    Not totally on topic, but I just got FSX this weekend, and it runs decently (~20fps at medium settings) on the iMac in my sig.

    Do you know if it utilizes the two cores?

    Could you be so kind and post some piccies just to get an idea of what it's like? I'd very much appreciate it.

    :)

    I took some screenshots, I'll post them tomorrow... I believe it uses both cores...
