Hi, I've noticed recently that the Mac community in Proz may be small but we don't give up to Windows! Well, not yet. That's why I wanted to ask - I am in the need of a new computer. My 4 year old iMac is starting to lag behind when I use VirtualPC, and use of Trados with Virtual PC is just out of the question! I don't want to buy a PC laptop just because I need to use a couple of CAT tools that might very well work within Virtual PC. But I'm not sure the new Macs are really fast enough to be compared with a PC in this matter.
Anybody has any experience about this? Mac users with brand new G4 processors: do you work with Virtual PC, and the most important, does it work for you?
Thank you, and long live the Mac!!

Can you be more precise about the applications you would be running on Virtual PC? Is Trados essential, for example? If Wordfast is an acceptable alternative, you can run that natively.
