I am considering purchasing a new laptop. I have Frame 9 and RoboHelp at
home and would like to be able to load Frame 9 and RoboHelp onto this
laptop. The software is now resident on my 32 bit (I believe) desktop.

Has anyone had any experience running Frame 9 and RoboHelp on the VMware on
a Mac?
Does it matter if the laptop I purchase has 32 bit or 64 bit?

I've also looked at the option of purchasing a refurbished Latititude (Dell)
laptop on Has anyone had any purchasing experience with these
refurbished laptops? Or can they recommend another site that's reliable?

I'm also wondering if it's a problem, could I VPN into my desktop from my
laptop using a freeware like Citrix? Any experience with this approach?

Thank you for your advice and suggestions.
