    Hello... ever tried running Flight Simulator 2004, Falcon 4.0 and X-Planes 8.0 on the Mac thru Windows XP? If the thing runs on the MacBook decently, I'd be happy

    Flight sim fans, sound off... Tally-Ho!

    No, not yet pero may contact na ako and alam ko na kanino magpa-order. Mas cheaper than getting it thru a local reseller. With 1 year international warranty pa. If you have a relative in the US, you can ask them to ship it by air thru Fed-Ex / Air21 for an amount that's still cheaper than buying it here, with insurance na.

    May Mac user sa FAS, tahimik lang yung iba kasi they're in the minority. Most of them are into graphic design. Queer kumbaga. I for one am not really excited about Windoze Vista and that comes from a PC user with 10-12 years experience... check out the minimum system requirements, ang taas! You gotta have a PC with server-like specs to run the thing decently. Unfortunately, I can't do without Windoze because some of the apps I use at work do run only on Windows. Kung may Mac equivalent lang, I'd switch. So far, I think the Boot Camp feature is one of the Mac's best assets. If you know to use it to its maximum potential and you're well aware of its limitations, it won't get you in trouble. Can't wait to get my hands on that Mac. Hintay-hintay lang ako at medyo major problem ngayon yang Random Shutdown issue na yan.
