    Hi,

    I was considering buying a PC for some electronics and CNC projects as I need both serial and parallel port outputs to talk to servo drives and embedded chip programming dingbot/thingy things that no software has been made for mac (nor do I think it ever will be now with the new intel chips)

    a search on google yields many many examples of USB to serial and USB to parallel (printer) port converters ...

    has anyone used either of these on a mac running XP ?

    Is it as simple as that ?


    cheers for any replies,

    nick ;)

    Running XP on a Mac is no different then running XP on any other notebook. If it has USB drivers it will work on XP on a Mac.
