13.3" MacBook. 2GHz Core 2 Duo. 3GB DDR2 RAM. 320GB HDD. OSX (10.6.8)
I have a 15" PowerBook G4 at 1.67GHz. I have Virtual-PC on it emulating Windows XP. I already know that XP runs slow do to the software emulating everything on the computer (CPU, RAM ect.) What I wanna know is even though it runs slow, can I play Peter Jacobson's Golden Tee Golf in it? This came out in 1998 and works good on XP. Not sure how well it will run on this machine.

It's remotely possible you might find someone on this forum who has tried that software with the setup you describe, but I think it is far more likely you are just going to have to try it and find out.
Let us know what you find out; now that you have asked, I am curious to know the answer.

I'm going to say regardless of the specifics...if you don't currently own "Peter Jacobson's Golden Tee Golf"...and if it came out in 1998...it can't cost much more than a few dollars to buy (certainly no more than $5-$10 in your local electronics "bargain bin").

If you already own this golf game...then you have absolutely nothing to lose by installing it & trying it. If it runs too slow...then uninstall it.

So just buy it, install it, and see what happens.:)
