    I figured I'd had all my questions answered when it came to ditching my PC and adding to my Mac collection in an attempt to only be reliant on Macs, but I realized that I can't watch my netflix on a Mac :( (the ones that say Play Now)

    I guess I could install Windows but that is extra $ I didn't factor in my purchase. Has anyone gotten around this?

    I used the installing Windows workaround. I had an old version of XP Pro. I installed VirtualBox (free) and then used it to create a Windows XP install. There is a seamless desktop mode that plays very nicely with OSX. I also use chrome this way. Not that much extra $$, especially if you have an old XP install lying around that you don't use anymore.

    Good idea, I don't think I have one though.

    EDIT: But I have some IT friends who I'm sure must have one.
