    I assume English is not your native language, as it was quite strange to read your post.

    As I understand from it, you now have a MacBook with Mac OS X on it and also have some software titles, that are Windows only.

    You can install Windows via BootCamp, which means you will run Windows natively as its own instance, without Mac OS X running besides it, which will give you full speed.
    You can also install so called Virtualization software like Parallels, VM Ware Fusion and Sun's Virtual Box (free), which will give you only a throttled version of Windows, but that may be sufficient enough for your uses.

    With that software you can install Windows as a virtual machine and run it while Mac OS X is running. Therefore you can install the software you need.

    You can also list the software titles here and see if any other posters might know an equivalent Mac OS X title.


    PS: What about all the ,,,,,s?

    If you installed Windows through Boot Camp on your MacBook, then they will run just like they were on a regular Windows computer (only a few applications would not work, however I have not seen a single one of my applications not work).
