I have tried it in the past with my MacBook air (can't remember the processor or memory or whatever) and had a few issues. Now, I am wondering if it will work with my computer.

More details below:

processor: 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5

memory; 8 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

graphics: Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 1536 MB

Hi astrin,

I am not from Laminar Research; just a flight simmer from downunder.

I doubt if your system will work.  Have a look at the following system requirements found at

For x-plane to work you need a dedicated graphics card; preferably a Nvidia card over and above an AMD card and certainly not the graphics connection from the motherboard  You will have problems with the small screen.

Any system will need to have cooling as heat is generated and needs to be removed quickly.

Take the advice of the system requirements and download the demo first.

Good luck
