Oh yeah! I use Winebottler to run some of my Windows apps. It doesn't
work for all, but the main ones. Had I found this before I bought my
text editor, I would have stuck with my familiar Notetab Pro. Now it's
just one of three or four other options.

Mac laptops don't do that. An when isn't portability an option? I
switched entirely to laptops years ago. I still have all of them, my
kids use my old ones. But I see how my Mac will outlive all the PCs
just because.
