I have a Power Macintosh G5 1.8 GHz… will Guest PC run Windows or my applications at the same speed as a 1.8 GHz Pentium 4?
In spite of the fact that the PowerPC G5 is a very powerful micro-processor, it cannot emulate a PC and run Windows at the same speed as the Native Processor. There is some overhead involved in the Emulation. That is why the speed of your Emulated PC system will be slower than a PC which is the same speed as your Mac.
I have a PowerMac G4 800 MHz and would like to install Windows XP. Will it run on my system?
