  1. What is the best way to run windows xp on my new macbook pro. I am interested in using quicken excel and onenote. I was thinking about crossover which doesn't need a copy of xp installed but I read not all programs work well on this software. Which software is the best for speed and runs all xp programs? Thanks for your help in advance.
  2. I am ready to buy a new laptop. I am replacing an iBook G4. I use it for ilife and iwork mostly, lots of digital photos and some video. I was considering the 15.4 macbook pro with the biggest drive and maxing out the memory at 4 gig. This would cost about 4,000 with apple care. I could probably get by with a macbook, but you can only max out the memory at 2 gig. So my question is if I buy the macbook with 2 gig of memory will this machine last for 4 years? Or will technology improve so much that I would need the 4 gig of memory. What do you guys think? Thanks

    How Can I Do This?

    I've recorded a show from my TV to my cable DVR. Now I burn the show to a DVD on my DVD recorder. Now I want to get this show from the DVD to my iMovie program. I want to edit the show in iMovie say taking out commercials. What do I have to do or get to do this, or can it even be done? Thanks for your help in advance Steve

    External HD Problems

    I have 3 external HD's. Two Iomega drives an 80 and a 120. Both of these drives mounted on my iBook G4 and my PC. I also have a mini HD that I built, a laptop drive in a case. This drive also works with both iBook and PC. When I received my new iMac G5 I plugged in the mini laptop external and it mounted and I copied my files. Since the new update 10.4.3 the laptop drive won't mount. Then I tried the 2 Iomega drive s and they don't mount either. All the drives are firewire. All of these drives are formatted in Fat32 format. Can you guys let me know if other people are having this problem and can it be fixed. I am using my iMac G5 most of the time and I have no way to back it up. I called Apple tech support and they couldn't help he said check Iomega's site fora software update. I think that a bunch of bull.
