Windows >> Mac

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, here is the dilemma... I'm the marketing coordinator for a promotion company and our art dept. has mac computers... obviously everyone else in the office uses windows...

We have issues with file transfers from the art dept to myself because of the different operating systems and softwares... rather than buying photoshop and illustrator for windows... this is what I was thinking and I want to know if it's possible...

I can get a PC (laptop) with dual-core 2GB RAM for about 500$ from a buddy... we want to just purchase the mac o/s and install reformat the PC with mac instead of windows...then obv use our photoshop cd and install it on the laptop.... can i do this?

Are there going to be driver issues?

im almost positive you can't install the mac os on a pc normally. There is a utility you can use i believe, but I don't recall its name.

It is illegal to do such a thing, but through much hard work and headache you can do it. Again though, this is against OCN and Apple rulings and agreements.

Yeah, like they said, it's illegal and isn't a 100% working thing.

If you're having problem sharing files (as in networking, if that's what you mean), I can help you if you like.
