Hello everybody... This is my first post here at the forum (heyysmile.gif ), but i'm an avid visitor of this website for about a month... Congrat's on the posts!!

First things first... before everything, i just wanna say sorry if you're tired-sick of reading (and aswering) this type of question - sorry - ... Then, i'd like to say i'm sorry (again) if my english isn't correct (because i'm from Brazil)

So, apologies made, let's get down to business....

I'm an avid simulation gamer (looking anxiously to purchase a sistem that runs FSX on high/med-high specs, not ultra high, w/ FPS of about 15-20), so, what's the performance of the 5760 when handling w/ FSX??? Any thoughts?? What about handling other games (Oblivion, Medievil II and other very demanding games)??? As you all can see, it is a notebook..

- Intel Core 2 Duo T-7400 (2 x 2.16ghz - 4mb L2 cache - 667 fsb)

- 2 gbs of RAM DDR2 667mhz (exp. to 4gbs)

- 100GB 7,200RPM SATA HD

- GeForce GO 7950GTX 512mb GDDR3

- 17" WSXGA+ (1680x1050) Matte LCD display

- OS: Windows Vista Home Premium OR XP (which one is the best??)

I'd apreciate if you could answer me the fastest possible (cause i'm thinking about pulling the trigger)

Thank you very much for the patience and attencion!!!!

After a quick trawl on various forums, FSX asks a lot at the highest from even a twin 8800 GTX SLI at 1680x1050 and above, however considering that's a high-end laptop, i'd expect it to run fairly smoothly on that at the lappy's native resolution at medium/high detail without AA/AF.

Why would you report the post?

As Wildheart stated. The laptop will be more than capable of running FSX. I can't guarantee a flawless experience (I wouldn't be simming on a notebook screen, period, anyway). It'll do the job though.

Portability. If you've got the money, go for it.

I do, but I prefer quality over portability any day ;)

Most laptops suck at gaming compared with a good old tower. In addition it's almost not upgradable. Plus, anyway a tower is portable.

lmao! Nice! That looks like it's about to give way.

Who says laptops aren't good quality? You pay for the quality however. I always say Desktop for gaming, but there is no reason why a decent laptop as listed above can't do a good enough job. As I said, if you can afford it.
