    Using PC games on a Mac
    Hi there,

    Just a quick question I'm completely new to macs so forgive me if it's obvious.
    Is there a program that will allow me to run a PC game on my MacBook, in OSX?

    Cheers,
    Max

    Look into parallels

    Well depending on the game, you may be able to use Crossover. Some games work flawlessly, others nearly so, others not so well. Check the compatibility database for the game you have in mind and see what the status is. Be sure to read through the game's discussion board... there may be unofficial workarounds to get it running.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
