    Sure, it's called Virtual PC but it's pretty darn slow...

    I would recommend staying away from VPC, from what I've heard, it's pretty slow.

    Virtual PC is not to bad as long as you don't plan on doing intensive processes with it. For example gaming, photo editing, and video editing are out of the picture. But a lot of web designers and some photographers doing moderate editing use Virtual PC---sure there may be some what of a lag--but that's better than not being able to open the file period. I'd suggest upping your RAM to. Best of luck...
