Im planning on buying a Mac iBook soon, but then I realized that I wont be able to run Hog PC, but then I realized that it should run from virtual Windows (a program that runs Windows OS on Mac OS). Has anyone heard or doing this before with success?
Welcome to the world of mac's, you will soon find out that we are better in every single aspect to our windows counterparts.
Except the theater. :-(
I have virtual PC on my iBook (old, its a G3 with a 700 mhz processor). Virtual PC is sloooooow. If you are thinking about doing anything in 3D on it, I have one word of advice, don't. I run the offline editor of the ETC boards, and have no problem with it, and I have a few lighting calculators, but that is all I really use it for. It is to slow to play games on. I have never used the Hog PC app, but if it does anything in 3D, it will take you a very long time, IMO.
I would suggest finding someone who has a mac with VPC, load it up and see how long it takes for what you need it to do.
However, mac's are godly. They are stable, strong and beautiful .
I love my Mac i use it as a media server by using final cut pro and a matrox card to break out to svideo, also i run protools and use it for audioplay back for shows i would not trade my g5 for anything. but i just bought wysiwyg and had to cross over to the dark side. I bought an PC anway if you dont have atlease a g4 i would assume running a pc emulator will be fairly slow. and a program that runs ligts is a very quick respose so i wouldnt think it would run smothly.
Hmm... I beg to differ... I spent a good deal of time today after school with 2 other computer guys trying to get a mac on a network! It wasnt even a windows network, it was a novell network! My PC (and to give them credit, some other macs) work fine!
I just think it should be clear, there is no "perfect" computer!
