VPC will run an accounting program like that just fine on a mini. VPC does not work with G5's but a G4 mini will run it pretty well.

It will probably even run reasonably fast.

Thanks for the info.
I have ordered a Intel mini instead of going the software route.I believe this will give me more options in the future.

Cheers
Brian

Well, shows I am out of date. I evidently missed the update where that was fixed. Years ago. Smile

aawil

How long after you turn off and turn on does it work? Mine ask me to type an authentication code but since it does not work, I can't do that! Sad

Ive tried it without a code but no luck.


Any help would be appreciated

Have a good day!!

I finally have my duo core mini. Very Happy
Installed bootcamp today and all is well, windows works fine.

I have to say though, 5 months without windows and now I can see how crappy it looks. Switching back and forth between the 2 OS's shows just how much better MacOSX is.

Good thing I will only have to use windows very rarely. Cool

Cheers
Brian

Your Mac Mini running VirtualPC should blaze through QuickTax. If thats your only Windows must-have, get VPC and garage sale the PC box. Then you'll be PC free. Smile

It's a good feeling.
