    I have a 1.9 Ghz iMac G5
    I want Virtual PC and Quicken for Windows.
    I was always told that applications run slow, very slow on VPC.
    Is anybody pleased with their VPC experience.

    I have a 2 GHz iMac G5 and VPC is slow :(

    To be honest, it doesn't seem to be much faster than my old 1.25 GHz G4!

    my Dual G5 runs VPC much faster than my old 1.5GHz powerbook. I assumed it had something to do with the faster HD, in which case I would say the iMac should run things acceptably, but I wouldn't rely on it for anything important, it'll just drive you mad. trust me, I tried running GIS software on it from work and it made me pull my hair out of my eyebrows

    Heck, VPC 7 runs slow on my 2.3GHz DP Power Mac G5. :(
