Microsoft Flight Simulator's rad Top Gun DLC adds a whole new dimension of fun

First off, while I haven't seen the new Top Gun movie, there are what feel to be a couple of spoilers. The first, a relatively minor one, shows up when you roll your F/A-18E/F Super Hornet through an especially sharp turn or climb, pushing G-forces up above 9 Gs or so. It's then when your pilot starts gasping for breath, leading me to believe that a movie plot point just might be that Tom Cruise's character isn't as up to the physical demands of flying military aircraft as he once was.

The other potential spoiler is unavoidable: a challenge to fly a particular experimental aircraft that feels very much like a mission Maverick would be asked to fly in the movie. I have no idea if this true, but I avoid showing it to you here out of caution.

In my mind, the latter mission isn't the selling point of the new Flight Simulator expansion, anyway. That's the five low-altitude ridge-hopping challenges that you'll fly behind the stick of the FA-18A Super Hornet. Set in various American locales from Alaska to Nevada, the challenge is simple: Get from the start to the finish as fast as you can, flying as low as you can.

Note that while Top Gun: Maverick is a free expansion for Flight Simulator, you'll need to either sign up for Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass (which gives you the game "free" with its subscription) or

The best Thunderbolt docks for your laptop

Simply put, laptops are slimming down. And in the quest for a "cleaner" look, many laptop makers are forgoing the legacy ports (particularly in the premium models), leaving those duties to external devices.

The biggest difference between Thunderbolt docks and USB-C hubs are price and bandwidth. USB-C hubs or dongles are far cheaper, but they offer far less bandwidth. That primarily matters where display connectivity is concerned, but can also affect the number and type of external hard drives, SSDs, and other peripherals that your PC can connect to. While a USB-C hub can support a single 4K display, often at an eye-wearying 30Hz refresh rate, Thunderbolt docks can support up to two 4K displays at a comfortable 60Hz. You can also use Thunderbolt 3 to enable an external GPU for your PC. (There's nothing stopping you from using a USB-C hub with a Thunderbolt dock, either.)

If your laptop includes a Thunderbolt port, chances are it supports the Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 standard, both of which provide 40Gbps.

This everyday Asus laptop with a beautiful 1080p display is just $370

First up, let's talk about that display. It's 17.3 inches with 1080p resolution, so no worries there. For a laptop this size, no matter how cheap, you don't want anything under 1080p.

As for the processor, Asus went with an Intel "Tiger Lake" Core i3-11800H. This CPU has just two cores and four threads. That's not much in this day and age, but it's enough to run Windows. The OS, by the way, is Windows 10 Home and it's Windows 11 ready.

To help keep things snappy, this laptop is packing 8GB of RAM. That's perfect for productivity tasks and will make a noticeable difference. For onboard storage, you get 512GB-a good amount at this price range where 256GB has become the norm.

As a day-to-day computer for travel or for working with cloud documents, this should be a good option.

[Today's deal: Asus VivoBook K712EA for $370 at Staples.]
