Dear "Ariejohannes" and "Rishi Shah",


Thank you very much for your assistance. I might consider extending the RAM size to 16 G, but I think that this will not be necessary, because of the fact that I recently downloaded the X- PLANE 11 Demo and it works perfectly!


I do not know if the demo runs faster than the full game, but I am alright right now.

Dear Christos,

I think it's good enough, however you have to consider to extend the  RAM to 16 GB to have it running smooth or you have to stop all unnecessary applications in task manager to free space.( I had that problem and solved it by buying 8 GB extra RAM)

Another thing to keep in mind is that I saw the NVidia is a M version, that means it is a notebook.

If you ever plan to use a VR system be sure that your lap doesn't have Optimus because this not supported in windows 10.

Hi Christos,

Everything is good except your CPU and RAM. I would advise getting a better laptop with better CPU performance (above 3 ghz) and get at least 16 GB of RAM like Ariejo mentioned.

Also make sure the CPU and GPU have decent cooling.

I don't know how much $$ you're willing to spend but consider brands such as MSI, Origin, Alienware, or ASUS. I also plan on getting a laptop in 3 months and I'm looking at MSI
