Can Parallels Desktop run on a G4 Apple laptop?

Asked on 07/28/2010:

Jacob,

I am pretty new to the Mac world. I recently purchased a iMac 21.5 and it runs OS X 10.6.2.

I would like to buy a Mac laptop (and don't want to spend alot of money) and would use it for web browsing, word processing, and I would like to run Parallels Desktop on it so I can have a Windows XP (now) and Windows Vista (future) virtual.

Are any models of the G4 laptop line viable for how I want to use a laptop?

Thanks!

- Marvin

Answer:

Parallels DesktopParallels Desktop needs to run on a Intel processor so the G4 laptops (which have PowerPC chips) are not going work for you.

Look at a 13 inch MacBook for a inexpensive Apple laptop that will meet your needs.

Let me know if you have any more questions,

- Jacob
