    I hope this is the right area for this question......Does anyone use autocad on their mac? How well does it work? Is it really slow? Just let me know if it works and how well. I am an architecture student and this is pretty important. Thanks.

    Define your question a bit better -- because AutoDesk AutoCAD comes in a variety of versions, none of which are OSX compatible.

    So: Are you asking about running AutoCAD under VirtualPC, or running AutoCAD on Windows with BootCamp, or running a different drafting program altogether that reads and writes DXF files?
