Works fine on the pc, thing is you still need to crack photoshop even with a legit key generally, and I havn't got a mac crack.

I need to do some coding for GPUs and I can't get the CUDA SDK to work for Mac so I gotta do it on PC.

What's the best virtualisation software for Mac? I know there's VMWare Fusion and Nova Parallels Desktop, which is better?

Virtual box, best by far. Surprised you wouldn't have encountered it yet.

Thanks, but I chose Parallels after reading this:

I tried both, and preferred VMWare, but i was only using my windows to run Sopcast to stream footy, got a dual system now though, so just have to restart to run windows 7, anyone know when office 2011 is going to be released for mac?

I would seriously consider virtualbox, we had a lot of headaches with parallels and fusion which virtualbox sorted out. Just the mac junkies at work ended up opting for parallels because it's more user friendly, but they're in a whole world of problems now. It's a better performing hypervisor than the other two also.

Just started working with HD video so my mac is a little sluggish when editing. Anyone know if/how I can make my computer as fast and as powerful as possible to keep up with the video?

Im having abit of trouble installing Photoshop. I installed a version last week but the serial didnt work so I uninstalled it and AppZapped it off my comp. I got a new version yesterday but just as its beginning to start installing it says it can find another version of Photoshop on my Mac, please delete and start installation process again. Ive searched and I cant find anything to do with Photoshop left, anyone know any way I can find these stealth files?

@Alfi

Make sure you have as much free hard drive space as possible - move whatever you can to an external drive.

Keep your Desktop clean - I've heard a cluttered Desktop can slow a Mac down, don't know if it's bollocks or not.

And most importantly (but most costly) add more RAM.


@joey

Check in Users > Joey > Library > Application Support > Adobe

See if there are any files left over in there.

^^ thanks Andy I already checked there and nothing. No folder for Adobe so AppZapper must have taken care of that. I've already restarted the computer a couple of times so I cant be that also Sad

All AppZapper does is use spotlight to search for related files and deletes them. It's not really an uninstaller.

If you look in Applications > Utilities

There should be an adobe uninstaller application in there.

Cheers andymakesglasses. How costly is it to add more RAM? Can I do it myself or is it a job for the mac shop?

It depends on what RAM you need / choose. You can check here.

And it's pretty easy to fit yourself.
