Considering new Macs have PC-compatible hardware, i m considering them as a viable option, especially due to the smaller space they take up, and me being on the move from house to house.
My question is: How do new Intel-based Macs cope with PC-legacy software , when running windows XP? Are DOSBOX etc and the built-in compatibility options of WinXP fully functional? Can I run older games/applications that worked fine on a PC with XP on those Macs, without any issues?
Finally, the Sound Blaster 16 question. What's the Sound hardware found on these Macs? can it handle SB16 emulation? or better yet, can i throw in my Live!1024 PCi board into them? (iMacs cant?:()
Do development kits and SDK designed for 2K/XP be ran on those macs? Do "bigger" macs even support PCi slots? (say if you want to plug in an ODEM card)
