a good machine to run Virtual PC

More on my Mac blurb.

Yes, more about the new PowerMac G4. It is not only a good machine to run Virtual PC for Mac, but the most powerful machine to run Virtual PC for Mac.

From Microsoft Virtual PC for Mac version 6.1:

For optimal performance in Virtual PC, Microsoft recommends the following:
  • An L3 cache on your computer.
  • Upgrading to Mac OS X version 10.2.3 or later if you are currently using Mac OS X. (Version 10.2.3 or greater is required for increased speed.)
  • Video cards(s) that support Quartz Extreme, such as nVidia GeForce or ATI Radeon video cards (if you are using Mac OS 10.2.3 or later).

Also, from Help:

Q. Does Virtual PC for Mac make use of MP (multi-processor) capabilities?
A. Yes, when run under Mac OS X, Version 6 does make use of multiple processors.

I have 2MB DDR SDRAM on level 3 cache per processor!

It's the best choice so far available for me to run Virtual PC for Mac. In fact, Windows 98 running under Virtual PC appears to be faster than my Windows XP Pro running on a real PC laptop (Intel PIII 850MHz). I bought a Mac to run Windows.

So what happened to the faulty 1GB of RAM? I sent them back to the retailer, and they will send back to the supplier to get replaces. They offered me refund, they don't have any spared RAM available. I prefer to wait.
