There are programmes such as "Parallels" that you can use to run Windows on a Mac. Is there any particular one that works better than the others. We bought an all in one Sony VAIO last February. From the start it did weird little things and eventually in early July, the hard drive died. We figured that perhaps the problem had been solved as Sony installed a new drive. The machine has continued to do weird stuff and Dale's Family Tree Maker programme just disappeared and the programme won't reload fresh from the disc. There are probably parts of the programme still on the computer. This is what led us to buy the Apple. I can usually fumble my way along and get things going again but this thing has become a total pain. HELP!!!!
