Default Just bought a MacBook!

Over the years a number of people have asked about running our software on Mac hardware and my response has been to point them at forum posts from users who have successfully done this using one or other emulator.

With the end of our tax year coming up and an immediate 100% write-down on equipment costing up to A$20K (10K), I decided to take the plunge and buy a MacBook Pro - the single most expensive piece of hardware I've bought since our Lexmark Optra laser printer bought 1995 - along with Parallels 11 and Windows 10. Having got the latter two installed, then SuperBeam 7, ProSteel 7 and EuroBeam, from an initial check they all run as expected. You'll probably need to increase the font sizes in the Configuration, Fonts dialog.

Initially I had problems when trying to install Windows 10 (off a USB stick) which were resolved by following the instructions at http://kb.parallels.com/en/123364 rather than what seem to be the obvious installation options.
