    I have a Powerbook G4 with Mac OS 10.4.10 (no intel chip).

    I need to run a few PC programs on it, simple programs nothing huge.

    How can this be achieved? (And preferably, how can it be achieved most economically as well...)

    Thanks.

    Virtual PC is the way to go. The post pointed out by kingjr3 seems to be the least expensive way to get it.

    Virtual PC is definitely the best way to go about running your simple PC apps on a non-Intel box.

    The most economical way to achieve this is also illegal. Pirating the software.

    However, the easiest way to get it legally, is just to head in to your favorite Apple retailer and buy it. Some of them even come with a pre-packaged version of Windows. My advice would be to run 2000 Pro. My experience with VPC and XP was not a good one.
