Hi, I am asking on behalf of a friend who wishes to get into flight sim and fly the FSLabs A320. He currently has a Dell Gaming laptop, with the following specs. Would these be likely be enough to run P3D with FSLabs A320? He's not looking for like high settings but he just wants a stable flight sim pc. Let me know your thoughts.

Processor - Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ
- Quad-core
- 2.8 GHz / 3.8 GHz (Turbo Boost)
- 6 MB cache
RAM 8 GB (2400 MHz) (32 maximum installable RAM)
Graphics card - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
- 4 GB GDDR5
- 10th generation Pascal


- 1 TB HDD, 5400 rpm
- 128 GB SSD

Hi Jarred,

He should be able to run the FSL but it won't be pretty, everything will be need to be set to minimum and he should be aware there are many things there that are below the minimum recommend spec, caveat emptor. Certainly the 8Gb RAM is below the recommend specs for example but I manage fine; the CPU is slow and thermally limited in a way you wouldn't get in a desktop and the 1050, 5400rpm HDD and tiny 128Gb SSD wouldn't get a look in on any decent desktop PC. His expectations should be pretty low and the PC will be need to be set up properly to avoid any issues (page file, etc.).
