BW 8.0 on iMAC or MacBook Pro?
I have BW 8.0, and I am considering switching from a PC to a Mac (if it is economically feasible). I just began my research into Macs today, and I am considering an iMAC or MacBook Pro with Windows 7 and one of the two major Windows emulators (Parallels 5.0 or Fusion 3.0). Has anyone tested these combinations of Mac/Emulator/Windows/BW?:
iMAC - Parallels - Windows 7 - BW
iMAC - Fusion - Windows 7 - BW
MacBook Pro - Parallels - Windows 7 - BW
MacBook Pro - Fusion - Windows 7 - BW
- What were your results?
- If you tried more than one of the above combinations, which worked best?
- What BW functionalities did not work?
- What speed changes did you notice?
- How does one export BW data within Windows 7 to the Mac environment?
- What about printing from BW out of the Window 7 to Mac environment?
Grace and peace,
BW 8.0 on iMAC or MacBook Pro
Dear Clint and Bret,
Thank you both for your helpful replies to my questions. I am encouraged from both your comments that BW on a Mac is feasible. Not only that, I know from long ago experience that the Mac UI is superior to MS, and it seems from your comments that that has not changed.
I hope to make it to the Mac store in the next couple weeks, and after some further investigation, I may have additional questions for you.
In the meantime, thank you again for taking the time to respond, and may He bless you both as you press on in Christ.
Grace and peace.
