    Certain windows software
    Hello, Ive been using mac for almost a year now, I still use windows (now and again) but my main computer is my macbook, hooked up to my 22" widescreen of course

    There is almost nothing it cant do! except run a virtual machine (got 4gb of ram on the way for that though!) But im trying to run Microsoft sharepoint designer and i can't get anything to run it

    Ive tried using crossover! Anyone know any other good apps like that?


    ty!

    You're probably not going to be satisfied running Sharepoint Designer from a VM or Crossover. It's best to use Boot Camp and run it natively from Windows XP or Vista. The reason is because you want all the graphical power and 3D ability you can get from native Windows rather then settle on using virtual machine drivers or the emulation which Crossover provides.

    Regards.

    I have just ordered 4GB ram for the macbook so will be running VMWare for just quick sessions but i have boot camp set up and if im doing a long project or something then i will use that!

    Thanks!
