    I know this has been spoken about in a previous thread but I am thinking of buying a Macbook 2.16ghz on the release of Leopard, on the last Friday of the month probably. I have been an aviation enthusiast for all my life really, my desktop can just about run the program with mid graphics, and that is 4 years old with 512mb of RAM. I know the macbook has a weak graphics card, Intel GMA 128mb? so will it run the programme on bootcamp. Obviously, expansion packs will be a no-go, but hey? i'll get to fly.

    Yeah, it'll run OK. You'll also be able to run x-plane in OS X on the MacBook with similarly "adequate" results. The onboard graphics will probably be the biggest hinderance, but it won't be too awful.

    Or you could play the free flight-sim that comes with Google Earth ;)

    I'm really hoping they develop that into a full blown feature for the next version of GE...it would be awesome...
