    I hope I can get a couple of Mac groupies to respond. I want to by a new macbook pro, however I know quickbooks doesn't do everything I'd like it to do on the invoice side. Since I do grass cutting I like Qxpress as the plug in for invoices and scheduling. Is there anything like it out there for the Mac?

    I would get the MacBook Pro, then use Apple's Boot Camp, which allows you to run 2 operating systems to dual boot into Windows XP when you want to use your Quickbooks and Qxpress. You will need to obtain a licensed copy of XP but you then have your Mac OS for you and XP with your business apps.

    If you want to run all applications within the Mac eviroment, there is a virtual server out for OS X called Parrallels Workstation. It is in beta right now but you can look through thier forums to see what people are saying. http://www.parallels.com/ This will allow you to run XP within OS X and never leave the Mac operating system.

    Hope this helps.
