    Macs

    I may be getting a brand new Powerbook G4 in February from my mother if I do well enough in the HSC. I'm wondering if there is anything I should no before making the jump from PC to Mac. And can I use any chess programs on it? I've gone too long without a computer based match.

    Unfortunately, ChessBase, ChessMaster and most chess programs are not compatible with Mac.

    Don't Macs have a program which simulates PC processes though? Like the command prompt on PCs for DOS based programs, only instead it's a WinSim?

    Possibly, but the Chess programs are written originally for windows. So even if there is a program like that, there is probably loss in performance.

    One problem... they cost a lil too much for my liking.

    The cost is not always a problem. For me (and most others) I am quite willing to pay these extortion-rates because of the quality and style I will receive in return. It's worth the money.
