downloadable cyclecomputers -- OS issues -- Mac, anyone?bill
Mar 3, 2003 8:29 AM
My wife is bent on replacing our home computer with a Mac. I pointed out that my Specialized P-Brain downloads only onto Windows PC OS. She rolled her eyes and said get a different one. I said, OKAY. I looked at Polar, though, and I think that they work only on PC's, as well. Any advice?
sorry i cant help, but why is she so hot on the Mac?collinsc

Buy "Virtual PC" for the macrrodrigz

It's a software emulator for the intel chip that works in the Mac system. It'll work more than fine for all your Windows software (Office, P-brain, etc.) to be used on the mac but games will be kinda slow.

Keep the PC- even an antique can run the software... and don't let your wife push you around so much ;)

Sorry to hear about your incompatibility, but Macs are great. I love my Macs. Will never give them up.

I don't have a "downloadable" cyclo-computer, but why do you have to "replace" your PC for that function? Can't you have both?

At the very least go out and get Connectix (now Microsoft) VirtualPC for Mac OS X.
