My wife is using an old program report card program from 2000 designed around the PPC architecture on her 2011 intel Macbook Pro. On both a Core 2 Duo Mac Mini running Snow Leopard and her 2011 Intel i7 Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard through VM fusion the program is EXTREMELY slow. Hitting back space to delete a word can take forever at times. The processor usage hits 90% or higher all the time. I have made two separate bids on two Apple G4 iBooks running Tiger. I'm just wondering if buying a PPC base laptop is going to get better results vs running the program on an intel machine.
