Hi all,

the question is... If i had a windows emulator would i be able to run PC games from it?

thanks in advance

You can use virtual pc. But from everything I have read, you won't like the performance. Now that depends on the games you plan to play. It maybe better to have a PC for games and an Apple for real work. :)

thanks, i'm not really planning to play loads of games on my mac anyway, just some old classics like Monkey Island and other lucas arts games :)

Hopefully, the performance issue won't be a problem.

Ok if you are going to use a Windows emulator.. i would suggest waiting till either later this summer or next year some time.. (mb dec or jan) because VPC is horrid at running games... and it is now in M$'s hands... and there will be a new Windows Emulator comming out with Video card support... so games wont be as laggy.. right now with VPC its pretty sad even trying to find a game that will run.

The only game you can play correctly on VPC is solitare and may be pinball. Not much else.
