Summary: Bought this for my father in law (85) ex glider pilot. He is running it on a desktop MAC and absolutely loves it. We are using the speedlink black widow flightstick and it works well. He reckons it is the best present he has ever had. Having not been particularly interested in computers he now loves them.

Summary: I have been using Microsoft Flight Simulator for the past 12-14 years, starting at FS98 and currently using FSX, on my Windows Desktop. Last month I brought my first Mac computer: New Apple Macbook Pro 15 inch Notebook (Intel Core i7 Quad Core 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 750GB HDD, Up to 7 hrs battery life) - Launched February 2011 . Unfortunately FSX is a Windows based game and so will not work on my MacBook Pro labtop.
