Apple computers come with an operating system called Mac OS X and only software written for Mac OS X will work with them.
However modern Apple computers use Intel processors which means that they can also run the Windows operating system. If you have Windows installed on your Apple computer then you can run Windows software.AnswerThere are a few ways to run Windows programs on your Mac:
1. You can install Windows as a separate operating system on your Mac using BootCamp (see http://www.apple.com/macosx/compatibility/)
2. You can run Windows inside of Mac OS X using an emulator such as Parallels Desktop(http://www.parallels.com/products/desktop/), VMWare Fusion(http://www.vmware.com/products/fusion/), or VirtualBox(http://www.virtualbox.org). VirtualBox is free to download and use, and the others offer free demos for download.
3. (Advanced) You can run Windows programs through using Wine, which can be installed for free on Mac OS X, but takes some time and computer savvy (see http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX/Installing and http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX/Building).
No they for work all computers that have windows XP or higher.
Almost all computers, with maybe a few exceptions, have Windows 7 pre-installed on them. That is, only if it is a Windows computer, as Apple computers don't have Windows OS.
IBM compatibles only. Apple has a completely different OS. Apples latest Intel computers can run Windows via Boot Camp but only as far back as XP and only on their older computers. Windows 7 and above are only supported on the newest ones now.
"No. Apple mac computers use Safari, and Firefox. Firefox is the same for Windows and Mac. I think that Internet Explorer was created for computers that use Windows only."
In order to run a Windows OS you need to have an Intel processor. Mac OS X will only run on an apple computer. Some apple computers are using an Intel processor so you can run a Windows OS or Mac OS.
Apparently it's only designed for use by Apple computers.
No you cant. it sucks i know. Imovie is specially designed for use with only apple computers
I think that Microsoft has better software programs especially the office software that is available only for windows.
Most Apple software is designed to work on their Mac OS X operating system and will not work on a computer running the Windows operating system. Apple does make some of their software available for Windows such as iTunes and their Safari browser.
Adobe produces versions of Photoshop for computers using Mac OS X or Windows.
no you cant. Inless its a new apple computer that runs windows too. zwinky works for internet explorer only..and sometimes firefox.
You cannot run Windows only programs unless you install Windows on your Apple computer and dual boot. Other than that there are no other disadvantages and many advantages.
No. Windows is not the only OS(Operating System) out there. For example Apple computers have their own OS, and there's also Linux. You do need an OS though.
Yes,Apple has a set of Windows drivers and software called Boot Camp to make Windows "see" the Apple hardware.As of 10.7 Lion you can only use W7 and above. Apple no longer supports, nor has drivers, for XP or Vista on Apple computers that came installed with Lion. Basically from late 2011 on.
Because unlike Windows, Apple and Apple alone builds the Apple computer. Windows does not build computers they only create software. Therefore there are many Windows computers that are cheap. They all may use the Windows OS but the cheap computers contain cheap parts. Apple does not build cheap bargain computers. When you compare a well built Windows Laptop to a comparable Apple Laptop there is very little difference in price. Remember you get exactly what you pay for.
Nearly all programs are availble for Macs and PCs, so the only major programs that are better for Apple computers are the ones actually made by Apple, such as its video editing (iMovie) and music editing (Garageband)
Windows is an operation system (OS) that operates on a variety of computers, including macs. You can tell if a computer is running windows by if it has the Start menu at the bottom and what version by going to the control panel and opening System. A mac runs an OS called Mac OS X and can only be found on Apple branded computers like MacBooks and iMacs. Apple computers can also run windows. The only way to run a mac on a non-apple computer is making a Hackint0sh. This is a modified version of Mac OS X and is very unstable, many people recommend not doing it.
No, Windows computers/Laptops do... But only WINDOWSI think, I am pretty sure
Avid's audio Pro Tools are available for both Mac OS X and Windows systems.
Yes, a mac can if its running windows, but only the windows operating system will get it not the apple software itself>
Only computers running Windows NT or later can have a computer account in a Windows Server 2008 domain; Windows 9x computers cannot. Since Windows 98 came out after Windows NT, the answer is yes. -Brandon
No, it is for computers too
Apple's Mac OS X is not available as a download and is only available for installation on Apple's Macintosh range of computers.
Most of Apple's software will only work on their Mac range of computers running Mac OS X. They do produce a few items that will work with the Windows operating system such as their Safari browser and iTunes. There are also versions of QuickTime, AirPort utility, MobileMe available for computers running Windows.
