Hello Very Happy

I've hopefully made the right choice & bought an 8gb 2.3 Mac Mini

I'm currently a PC man, but have been forced to go back to Mac to build some IOS apps.

I now seek advice on the way forward to run Windows on my Mac Mini due to not wishing to purchase Adobe Creative Suite again!

All help & advice much appreciated.

Hello there!

You can use Apple's Bootcamp to boot into Windows. Virtual Box, Fusion, and Parallels let you use another OS as if it were an application.

I use Fusion, but would just use BootCamp if you're looking to save money. It's free and works well. You also have all of the system resources at hand.
