    A coworker let me have his Flight Simulator X for windows since he switched to Mac. I plan on using it on my laptop, 210 GB HD and 2 gig RAM. I haven't downloaded it yet. What is a good joystick to buy? Are there any other things I may need to consider as far as upgrades? My laptop is only used for web surfing and moving pictures around right now.

    I have a Saitek X52 Pro along with the rudder pedals and a TrackIR 4 head tracker. i run FSX on my laptop and its 3 or 4 years old now.

    It's an Intel pentium 2 dual core. I flew a couple times but the scenery isn't very detailed on it at all. Inside the plane the graphics are pretty good.
