    Virtual PC and PowerBook 17" 1.33 GHZ, 512 Ram

    Hi has anyone tried using The latest version of Virtual PC 6.0 With Windows XP Home or proffessional, I would like to know the performace, how fast is it, is it good enough to work with it, THE PROBLEM is that i need to run it on my new uodated powerbook, because i need to run on it for school.

    I had an IBook with 800mhz, 640Ram, and 32 MB Video, And the performance sucked, it was really slow and crappy, a

    I want to know if i will lose my money because, it is not going to be fast enough.

    Thank you

    It's still going to suck, especially with XP. Try just running Windows 98 or 2000 if you want a faster experience. XP just has way too much multimedia and bloatware that ends up slowing down VPC. I used to use it with 98 and it was running at a decent enough speed with my PowerBook G3 to be okay, so see if that would work for you.
