I just purchased my first MacBook Pro, and I have to run Internet Explorer for work. Its the only browser that will work with my portal.

Is there any programs that will run IE other than parallels? I tried wine and cant figure it out.

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks

I would definitely suggest Parallels or Fusion for this. It would be real straightforward. You will need a legit OS that meets certain requirements though.

What kind of portal is it? I've found that often, IT techs are quick to jump the gun and say things like "you have to use IE".

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
