Does anyone have experience with X-Plane on the new intel mac mini (Duo Core)? I know that integrated graphics are not very suitable for gaming, but is XPlane playable (for example with 1 GB of ram)?

I'm running X-plane 8.40 on a G4 1.42GHz mini w/1GB RAM without issues. I expect it'll run even better on your Duo Core.

oh that's great!
Are you running x-plane with global scenery or the default scenery?

Default. The pictures of the global scenery do look sweet though.

I'm in the process of building a DIY LCD projector (my latest distraction). I'm hoping to run x-plane on a 100+ inch projected screen when I'm done. Of course that'll probably drive me to purchase the global scenery and an Intel Mac to run it on. It never ends...
