I am off to university this fall and getting a laptop. I have about $4000 Canadian to spend on it. I got an iPod for graduation and it was the first Mac product I've ever had. It's just so beautiful that I'm now looking at Macs for my laptop. Also, I'm majoring in film and video and will be doing DV work, which might include work on my laptop. And Macs have the reputation for being the best at this sort of thing. However, I'm still a little bit uncomfortable with program compatability. There are a couple programs I'm not sure I could do without. I need Paint Shop Pro and Filetopia. But both programs require Windows XP. I read something about Virtual PC on Macs. What is that? And is there any way I can run those two programs?
