    Lightbulb Potential Switcher?
    I'm trying to put this as politely as possible. The guys over at Microsoft put together a fine product I'm sure but I'm over it. At home I've got a Mac Mini and an iPad. I've replaced all Windows installations with Linux. I just have one problem. The company that I work for makes software that only run on Windows. I'm up for a new laptop at work and I would like to get a Mac but I have to be able to run our software. Is this an option or should I just conform?

    I run Winows effortlessly on my iMac using Parallels. Is that what you mean?

    There's lots of solutions for running Windows concurrently with Mac OS X on a Mac. Although they are not ideal for playing video games or using software that requires 3D acceleration, they work great for running most productivity and/or business apps. If your company allows you to purchase the laptop of your choosing, a few stray business apps that are Windows-only, shouldn't be a roadblock at all.

    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!
