It's Christmas morning and I have successfully installed G3 on my Toshiba Centrino Laptop P4M 1.4 GHz. Before installation, I updated my video Driver. After install, I downloaded the most recent patch. After starting the sim, I calibrated the Interlink Controller and set the aircraft flight realism to highest. The sim ran great the first time I loaded it. There is still a little wierdness (bumping, hopping) when the plane is on the runway sometimes but it sure is great fun to be able to fly a great selection of planes anytime I want. I didn't find it difficult to fly any of the planes I tried as configured at start-up. I'm a very pleased customer at this point, considering all of the negative feedback I have been seeing. I'm sure the quick patches helped greatly (Thanks Knife Edge and the Beta Testers) and I'm glad I waited for things to be sorted out before install. Now I just have to wait for the helicopter update disk since I could never download it on my dial-up. Thanks again to everyone involved in the release of G3, especially the hardworking programmers and diligent users (customers).
