While the choice of seat might seem more appropriate for a racing sim rather than a flight sim, I don’t think any hardcore gamers would complain if they found this under the tree Christmas morning. The HotSeats 723 not only includes all the accessories you’d need for a half-decent flight sim like flight controls, pedals and a Dolby 5.1 surround sound system, but it also includes a Shuttle micro PC and a 23 inch widescreen monitor.
The PC is a Pentium Duo 1.8 GHz dual core processor machine with 2Gb of RAM, a 512Mb Nvidia graphics card and Microsoft Flight Simulator X pre-installed. The rig itself is made with a welded steel and aluminum frame and is completely adjustable to accommodate a wannabe pilot of any size or age.
The HotSeats 723 normally sells for $8,049 according to GameChairs.com, but it can be yours for just $5,635. At that price you’d be stupid not to pick one up for you co-pilot as well.
