The world would have been a better and more efficient place if the PC-Mac relationship was reversed... And absolutely no-one would use a PC.

I daren't use a Mac for fear of becoming more of a self-righteous prick than I already am.

Besides, I use MT4, IG's trading platform and play BF2 and Diablo 2 a lot. I'd have to run Windows on a Mac. Which means I spend more money to end up in the same place. Which is daft.

Besides, if Macs were that great, this thread wouldn't exist. Neither would anti-PC websites...

I like my Mac mini. Relatively cheap, runs 2 monitors off the shelf, whisper quiet, takes up almost no room on the desk. When it becomes obsolete it doesn't join my closetful of old PC's, it becomes a great entertainment center for my TV, w/ internet, DVD, hulu, netflix etc.

For trading it runs IB's TWS just fine.

I have PC's and mac in the house. The whisper quiet counts for a lot. Faster boot up is nice too.

I have a Mac Book Pro with Snow Leopard and happy. Mac OS is better then Window but you need to be ready to deal with a lot of stuff.

Is there a way to install MT4 on Mac without Virtual Box?
