I'd like to find a laptop for my son (age 9) so he can play Flight Simulator X to his heart's content this Xmas. Here's the hurdles: I know NOTHING about laptops and I have very little money to spend. Help! [more inside]
Can I get my second monitor to emulate a higher resolution? I have an ATI Radeon video card using two monitors. The second monitor only goes up to 800X600 (an old LCD). However, Microsoft Flight Simulator X only allows the resolution of a display to be set to as low as 1024X768. I'd like the second monitor to think it is at that resolution and display a portion of the 1024X768 on its available area of 800X600. i don't care if the rest is not visible. Any ideas? Thanks!
