My Win Vista laptop has die for a few months now.

I am thinking of getting a Mac now, either Macbook Air or Pro

What are the methods to run MT4 on Mac Anyone mac user here?

What are the pros and cons?

1) Bootcamp

2) rEFIt

3) VMware Fusion

4) Parallels Desktop

5) MS Virtual PC

.... etc (let me know if you know of more methods)


USDCHF Turns Down On Further Price Extension
USDCHF: The pair saw a follow-through lower the past week on the back of its previous week losses. This development leaves it weak and vulnerable to the downside in the new week. On further weakness its key support located at the 0.9527 level will be targeted. A move below that level will call for more downside pressure towards the 0.

2) rEFIt is only a bootmanager, you still need the bootcamp solution.

Bootcamp cons: you have to reboot to switch OS, if you trade or develop much you won't use OSX.

3-4) heavy resource consumption but stable solutions.

5) never tried

I use wine. A windows emulator. With winebottler its an easy installation

Winebottler sounds like a good option. Is it stable?

Win slows down over time. Hope mac is more stable.

No stability issues on my side (mac pro, snow leo) The only thing i noticed is that emulated programs use the the windows shortcuts for copy/paste.

A well i forgot to add that you might cannot use the latest build trough wine. i use still 226
