So you love Macs or at least think you might like to try one out, but as a REALTOR you have been told by everyone that it won't work with you MLS site. Ok, thats just great. Now what do I do?
Well, your not the type to give up, so you start googling and find Parallels and VMWare. They both seem to work well, but they take so dang long to load and run. They also cost around $50 or more!
Well potential Mac consumer do not give up so easily!!!
I present to you CrossOver for Mac its around $30.00. This nifty little application wraps the Wine software and allows for a one click install and many standard Windows applications. Wine is actually free, but requires some tweaking to get running and for many agents can be a pain. CrossOver provides an easy install and many tested Windows applications so you don't need to mess with WINE at all. The best part of CrossOver is it runs fast, its not loading all of Windows and then IE; it just loads the bare minimum to run your app.
The best news is you can try CrossOver for free for 30 days, just click here and give it a go. I have tried all the different flavors of IE for our NTREIS system in DFW and I personally went with IE6. I hope you enjoy this and it helps you to make the switch to a Mac.
Here is a screen shot me running IE on my 27" iMac.
