I'm looking for a laptop to run Microsoft Flight Simulator X and the upcoming Microsoft Flight. I'm a student right now, and I'll be going off to flight school soon, so a laptop would be a better choice as opposed to a desktop. My budget is $1300, and I've been really considering this laptop http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Laptop+/+Intel%26%23... What are your thoughts and/or suggestions?

Hello Stunna101;
That's not too bad a value and if Flight is anything like FSX it should do fine.
For about the same price you can get a custom Sager NP8130 @ $1172
2nd Gen Core i7-2630QM 2.0Ghz Sandy Bridge CPU, 8GB RAM, 500GB 7200rpm HDD 15.6" 1920x1080 LCD & GTX 460M GPU.

I forgot to mention that Sager doesn't include the OS at that price. I suppose you have access to a student deal on Windows 7?

Does the 460M in the sager really compare to the 5870 in the Asus?

So are there any other options, other than the sager? I don't really like Sager pc's, and is xoticpc.com safe?

There are always options. That Best Buy Asus G73JH is one.
xoticpc.com is very safe. They also carry custom Asus and MSI laptops.
