    Hey Everyone,
    At the moment, I have a PC that I hate. It crashes and is always getting bumbared with viruses. I was looking in getting an Ibook with a 800MHz G4. I would also need to get virtual PC 6.1 so i could run PSpice for windows of my electrical engineering class. My question really isn't about weather or not to get an ibook, but pretains more to running Pspice on the ibook. Has anyone used an ibook with Pspice. If so, how did it do.

    Thnanks

    ibooks are cool (i used to have one), but powerbooks are cooler! If you interested in purchasing a 12 inch model, email me. If not...grrrrrrrr.

    I have a 12" ibook, and to sum it up in two short words, "it rocks" :)

    virtual pc is pretty slow in itself. So, it would be slow on ibooks too.
    My roomie uses pspice, he says you can get pspice for mac
