    :confused:Can I use Parallels or Virtual PC to run Windows XP so that I can use Sonar Studio on my Power Mac G5 PCI-X/2.7 GHz Dual Processor.:confused:

    I am confused as to what intel-based means and PPC? I recently bought a used PowerMac G5 and I am not sure what the difference is. Please advise.

    More Specs:

    Power Mac G5 PCI-X/2.7 GHz Dual Processor
    7.2 GB of RAM
    400 GB internal drive plus 400 GB add'l internal drive
    internal SuperDrive

    PowerPC (POWER5, in this case) processors were manufactured by IBM
    Core2 processors were manufactured by Intel

    The PowerPC processors are not x86 processors, and cannot run Windows or any other x86 process. (they can in a VM, Windows XP, which emulates the x86 processes, but I can't remember the VM name at the moment, its not Parallels or Fusion, though, since they are x86 based applications).
