No, can't use just a GPS - I'd bore you with the explanation why.

Damned Macs won't run navigational software for crap in VPC.
Today is a sad day. A Dell, no less.

I second that recommendation....SiliconAddict said:Don't know how much expierence you have with windows but one tip. Reinstall the OS from the provided CD. Seriously. Do NOT stick with the default OS that came with the system. Dell adds all kinds of other crap to the system that makes it unstable.
Thats pretty much says it, after decades of only Macs i bought my first PC this past year. Id rather use a Mac but for somethings they just dont cut it. I think Apple is on the right path to changing this. Bring on the Intel Macs and the sooner the better. I really didnt want a Alienware but Apple forced it on me. Its very solid hardware. But it aint Mac OS thats for sure.wrc fan said:Really how many Mac users don't have a PC? It's unfortunate that iGary had to get one (and more unfortunate it's a Dell), but pretty much everyone I've talked to on here has one. I'll admit that I (sorta) have a Shuttle SS40G (it's on loan to my dad right now), but I don't actually use it anymore.
That's a good one! A Windows box to be there if your Mac goes down You won't be using it much if that's the case - except for your navigational softwareiGary said:..they wanted a back up machine that can do the Photoshop and other work I'm doing if the G5 goes down
Well I am getting good enough with my Photoshop actions that I can also set it up to do work while I'm doing work on the G5, but honestly, all I really need it for is the nav software.Cooknn said:That's a good one!

I'm freaking lost with Windows - not trying to start a flame war (OS X vs Winblows), but man, Windows is so counter-intuitive. I look like a fool trying to use it. Of Course, I've been known to look like a fool trying to use OS X, too.mad jew said:So iGary, you may wanna upgrade that ol' signature then.
I've got a PC stashed away somewhere and I can honestly say I don't regret getting it. I like having a dabble in XP every now and then, if only to remember why I use OSX.
As for working with two machines on different operating systems at the same time, go iGary! That's impressive.
