    OK, sorry for the n00b question. For one of my classes, it is required to run SystemWorks which, but my knowledge isn't out on OS X.

    I currently have an iBook G4, but am going to sell to get a MBP. Can SystemWorks run on the new Mac (legally!)?

    Thanks!

    With parallels or bootcamp... but you'd also need a copy of XP.

    Is it legal?

    Is Parallels basically VirtualPC?

    Yes, provided you have a legal copy of XP and SystemWorks.

    Opps, I meant SolidWorks. Dunno why Norton is stuck in my mind.

    Thanks for your help. : )
