It should run alright, but does the laptop have dedicated graphics? You may need to lower some settings and I would mod the FSX.cfg file. https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?259352-FSX-P3D-Software-and-Hardware-Tweaking-Guide


EDIT- It does have dedicated graphics. Newegg has this laptop only rated at three stars. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231115


If you get Windows 7 or 8, make sure you install FSX into the root of C: drive and not the programs folder.
