this has probably been asked hundreds of times but ive upgraded mine slightly so not really sure

i was thinking of buying x-plane etc

its a late 2009, early 2010 model (purchased in 2010)

my specs:
2.26Ghz intel core 2 duo
4GB DDR3 ram
500GB 7200rpm HDD
NVIDIA GeForce 9400

what do you think? worth a go or no were near powerful enough?
QUOTE Thanks

X-Plane or the MS Flight Simulator (Windows) will work, albeit a bit slow with regard to frame rate and scenery. X-Plane works best with a machine that has robust graphics. Your Mini has the nVidia 9400 which is not a bad card but as I said above it'll be a bit slow on scenery response.
QUOTE Thanks
