Hi Stefano,

i used stata 10 SE on my 2 year old G4 powerbook, which worked well. Though i must admit i am pretty sure my applications and little scripts didnīt test stata to the heart, i can truly recommend it.
I do feel like it worked better than a lot of other applications that were not really meant to work on a mac back in their origin, such as microsoft office.
As of now, i have a new 4 GB Mac Book Pro running on Leopard. I haven īt installed Stata yet. The system is running very well, everytime i work with it, i wonder how anyone in the world can use windows by his/ her will. Especially since parallels is running well too for some windows applications that still dont run on a mac.

Get your mac book pro (with as much RAM as possible) and be happy with the decision everyday or get windows vista and tons of updates and virus scanners - its your choice

Dear all,

I have a non-Stata question, but I need an answer to use stata at its best!
So far I have used Stata 9.2 SE on my laptop (IBM T series), but now I have to give it back to my department and I have some doubts. I'm choosing between the new version of IBM T Series and Macbook pro. My old IBM worked very well, but I like also the Macbook pro. Unfortunately I don't have colleagues or friends who use Stata on a Mac machine. Could anyone give me some feedback? Has anyone done any comparison? Good functioning of Stata will be an essential variable in my decision..
Thanks a lot,
Stefano
