    I just got a new laptop with a dedicated graphics card (Radeon X700). So far FS is looking good, and it seems to perform a bit better than my desktop system, which is basically the same specs as far as hardware, only differece in the laptop is that the Radeon X700 is a PCI express card, while my desktop is an AGP Radeon X700. PCI express is a newer/better interface.

    There's nothing worse than a crappy low graphic card

    I appreciate that, Sam My laptop however won't run the thing at all (the scenery is all blocks and the instrument board is a black box ) so when i fly, I have to use my brother's computer... which IS better but not THAT good I think Kevin's computer is better graphic-wise... but when I'm in the UK and I get heaps of time to fly while kev's at work, I'll give you a shout, mate!

    Mostly because the joystick was messed up and I was getting annoyed at his "you must be related to that amstrong guy!"-comments... I think he was hitting on me

    Once I do get to "landing" (whether it's good or not) I PROMISE you'll see a screenshot
    Best way to practise is takeoff then slew it back and just keep trying to land on the runway, Once you've done that try making your own approaches with turns etc...

    I do need something to do when he's working from like 4 AM to 9 PM
