Firstly, please excuse my lack of knowledge but this is one apple area in which I have no idea. Basically I have a macbook but I need to use Microsoft Access. Unfortunately there is no version for mac so I need to run it on windows. I have heard that it is possible to run windows on a macbook and so I could therefore use this to run Access in windows on my mac. Right so questions. I've read that you need an intel mac in order to be able to run windows. Mine is about 2 years old so is it likely that it will be an intel macbook? Also if it is an intel one what do I then need to run windows? I've heard about bootcamp and parralels- do I need to purchase one of these?? Also if I do manage to install windows on my macbook will it be exactly like being on a pc- ie. will it be possible for me download access from internet just like in on a pc? Sorry for all the questions but this is one area where I am very very very confused! Many thanks!
