    Specs:
    MacPro 2.66
    Running Quickbooks on Parallels?
    What type of performance might I expect running PC windows mainly and PC Autocad occasionally with Parallels on a Mac Pro? I could load up the ram if it would help.

    The applications would run on the Macpro and the data would reside on another machine through a XP peer to peer network?

    Applications that don't require 3D support should run very well. AutoCAD would likely be problematic because 3D support is very new, and very limited in Parallels (and VMWare Fusion for that matter). If you need full 3D support in Windows, your best bet would be to run it under Boot Camp.

    Quickbooks (which you mentioned in the thread title) should run fine.
    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!
