Re: When I can run...

"but if I could run windows on my Mac..."

You'd end up with an Apple-branded PC. And that would... well, quite frankly... SUCK! Pay more for a "nice looking PC" that is just as prone to Windows bugs, spyware, viruses, and Trojan Horses as the next PC.

A Mac that runs Windows natively (like a standard PC) is NOT a Mac. It's just an Apple PC. As long as there is some translation layer between the Mac and Windows (i.e. it doesn't run windows 100% natively, even if Windows does run at native speed, since the Mac is based on an Intel processor), that will be acceptable to me. But if I can pop in a Windows CD and install Windows just like I can on my regular PC, I will consider the Mac Era over with and never buy another one.
