    I am considering switching from a pc to a mac and one of the important tasks that i do on my comp is finances. I currently have a win98 running quicken2003. I need a better machine and am looking at mac but this talk of lousy financial software makes me concerned. Should I run win software on virtual pc? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Duff-Man says...I guess the question really is - what features of Quicken do you use? The Mac version of Quicken is a little (!?!) behind the windoze version in features, but that only matters if you are using those (mostly "more advanced") features, and of course if your bank supports Mac online access through Quicken's online features (if you use those). I use Quicken 2003 for Mac to keep track of my $$$ and for what **I** need to do it works just fine....oh yeah!

    i use quicken 2004 for the mac and it's fine for me, although i'm not using many of the more advanced features. just balancing a few accounts, a few liabilities, a few savings plans. if you're familiar with quicken, it might be easiest to get the mac version rather than switch to a new program you're unfamiliar with.

    They have a free trial and a rebate for quicken users (should) -- and some stuff on transfering the quicken files over to AccountEdge.

    If AccountEdge is too powerful a program for your needs they have a smaller product.

    Everything I have read states that I may not be able to import my bank info (bankofamerica) electronically into quicken. I also see that programs like employee stock purchase plans (espp) are not supported. Before I make the plunge to mac I need to know what I am losing out on. Thanks for everyones advise.
