Its time for my Dad to replace his lovely Dell Inspiron laptop and I am trying to pursuade him to get a mac. He uses XP & Office XP on the current machine. If he got a MacBook, could he run office xp through parallels without it being a hassel (!)? Bearing in mind he is 60, but is ok with computers. He uese word/excel/powerpoint and has some simple access databases and uses outlook for contacts/emails/calendar. He is NOT a power user by any means. He also has a dell axim handheld - will this work ok through parallels? You might think, get a PC, but his main reason for upgrading is digital media (current laptop has 10gb HDD) - i am thinking he will find managing his photos etc a lot easier with iLife.
