Hi everyone, I've recently joined this forum as I am going to migrate into the world of Macs. I currently use PC boxes and was immediately smitten by the new Mac Mini, so I ordered one. Havely done a little bit of research before hitting the order button, I picked the 1.4 GHz processor with 1 GB of RAM (+Wifi, BT, wireless keyb and mouse). The machine will really only be used for web browsing/email, music/photo. But I will need to use Microsoft Office for work purposes when at home. I going to be using my PC as a music file server (running Slim Server). Which has all the applications on I need for work. BTW I only need to use Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook (Entourage). I will need to connect to an Exchange server for mail and calendars. What would be the best option mainly for speed (cost not really an issue as company will purchase software, within reason( )) Buy Mac Office Standard Use Virtual PC and install my PC based Office suite Use Remote Desktop to access the software on my PC In addition I will have some software that is only available for PC. Such as the software for programming Philips Pronto remote controls, will I be able to use this software under Virtual PC? It requires use of a USB port to programme the remote control. My thought would be to buy Mac Office Pro which has Virtual PC bundled with it, and then I can get the best of both worlds. I have used Mac based kit before, back in the SE30 and Quadra days but things has moved on since then. Any comments, thoughts and advice will be greatly appreciated.
