I have tried the Mac version of Quicken and wasn't impressed. I want to get rid of my Windows desktop but I need to figure out how I am going to run Quicken for Windows 7. The only other programs that I MIGHT run from Windows would be Word or Excel. I will not be running anything else and it really bothers me that I have to run Windows for one program. I am currently backing up everything with Time Machine and Time Capsule and it would be very important that Quicken data be backed up also. I am thinking of adding a HDD in place of the Superdrive so that I can do a Time Machine/Time Capsule backup from the SSD and a CCC clone from the SSD to the HDD. Would this also backup the Quicken and Windows 7 data. So, what would be my best option and why, Parrallels 7, Vmware 4, or Bootcamp.
