We go with the Windows computers at the office because all of the legal-specific software that we use is Windows-only (for example, AbacusLaw, DissoMaster, Attorney's Briefcase). Sucks, but that's how it is.
There is an alternative. It is called Windows Virtualization. Parallels and VM Ware Fusion 6 are software programs that allow you to install Windows on your Apple computer, and then run Windows and all of your Windows software on that computer. I have installed Parallels on my Mac Book Pro and it is AWESOME!
Now I can have the best of both worlds. Windows programs and Mac Happiness.
|Fusion 6 on a Mac|
A couple of confessions: In addition to buying Parallels or Fusion 6, you are also going to have to buy a copy of Windows to install on your Mac. Your looking at more than a couple of hundred dollars. Also, the complete installation on your Mac can be a bit challenging. Be humble and call tech support. With help it took me about an hour and a half to get it done.
I am going to be speaking on this topic at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers in Chicago on November 5, 2014. Stop by and say hi!
