    ok so my goal is to run PC software wether thats games or applications on my macbook pro. I know i could get the fusion software that can put pc on it but i heard that it splits my hd in half. then i read something about virtual pc/boot camp if I had an intel-mac. so honestly im a tad bit confused about how I go about doing this which is why im here. thx in advance people!!

    Parallels offers a free trial also. I have XP and Vista installed on my Macbook. Works like a charm.

    You need to install emulation software like Parallels or VMware Fusion. It allows you to run Windows and many other operating systems under OSX.

    With Parallels and VMware Fusion you install windows just like you would on a PC... I will have a tutorial on it soon! :)
