iEmulator: Windows on your Mac


Posted by Kristin Wenzel Categories: PC / Laptop, Software


iEmulatorIf you’re a Mac user but still need to run Windows software, but don’t want to pay the high price for VirtualPC, iEmulator is a new, low-cost, high-performance PC emulator.

Designed for MacOS X 10.3.0 or above, it reportedly runs Win98 or 2000 with the least difficulty, so if WinXP is your thing, you may be out of luck.  However, for everyday tasks requiring Windows (such as the web designer who needs to check browser compatibility or a real estate broker who needs to use his company’s proprietary Windows-platform-only software), this could herald a huge breakthrough for Apple users who have no desire to have a “backup” PC.

Features include the ability to designate up to 1GB of RAM to the emulated PC, access Mac format files within the PC environment, Windows boot disk creation for installation, and even a DOS operating environment.  And with a price tag under $25, it’s a bargain buy for a die-hard Macintosh user, with the added bonus of directly supporting the software developer, rather than some big multi-million-dollar corporation.
