i will start out by saying i plan on buying the top of the line mac in march next year whatever that ends up being.

but for now i as of next week i wont have a computer so to tide me over seen as i dont yet have the money for a high end mac i was thinking of buying the core duo 1.66Ghz mini with 1Gb of RAM.

my questions are as follows

1] will this run parallels well?
2] am i better of using boot camp?
3] under XP will i be able to play the classic game UO?
4] does aperture run well on such a low spec machine?
QUOTE Thanks
