I have an iMac that I would like to be able to use for occasional financial look-ups. MSN doesn’t like it and won’t let me see some of its graphs. I also use Morningstar’s Principia, also Mac unfriendly. Is there a program that is able to handle Windows programs on a Mac? Has anyone reported their experience with it? If so, I’d like to get in touch with them. I left a message on the CI message board Sept 12, but have seen no reply.

Connectix (800/950-5880, www.connectix.com
) markets Virtual PC for Mac, which allows users to run Windows-based software and Internet tools on Macintosh systems. Virtual PC pricing depends on the version of Microsoft Windows that is included with the package. You can buy Virtual PC along with Windows 98 Second Edition, ME, 2000, and XP Home or Professional. You can also buy Virtual PC with PC-DOS alone if you already hold a license for a version of Windows or another operating system such as LINUX. Prices range from $129 for the PC-DOS version to $249 for the XP Professional and 2000 versions.
