My boss is contemplating going to a Mac from his Dell. I have encouraged him to think about this and its coming down to upgrade time. I have a few questions that I have found confusing answers to already in the forums (I didn't open a new thread without at least doing some homework). 1. We are on a Windows 2003 Server and he will need to easily be connected to the domain. Can it be done in OSX? Do I have to install parallels and run XP? Is this an easy task? 2. Will his mail work like he is used to it working? I.e. Exchange server... 3. Will his documents folder be backed up to the public folder on the server? And is it easy to create this "share?" Basically, will it work like his old system did? I am waiting until I have enough money stashed away to buy a macbook (I was an early adopter of the iPhone and that 200 dollars would have helped me achieve this goal earlier), currently I'm on the not-so-wonderful world of windows...and I don't have a unit to test these things out on. I hear that parallels will let you run the two OS's at the same time but I don't know if running XP on a Mac will still give you all the networking functionality of a traditional windows based machine. Thanks for your help!
