Customer Question

I have an IMAC 24". It has an Intel 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo processor. It is my understanding this can run MAC or PC operating systems. Does this mean I can purchase Windows XP for PC or does it have to be a MAC version?

You can purchase the normal version of Windows XP or Vista and they will run properly on this machine. If you would like to run the mac and PC systems side by side you will need an emulation software like VM Ware Fusion or Parallels (both of which can be downloaded) in order to accomplish that.

Let me know if you need additional assistance.
