Well, since she lives about 90 miles away in the city of Birmingham these days, I think that could be an issue.
I probably could hire something like a mid-range iMac from a computer rentals firm for a week, but I don't
know how much that would cost without specifically contacting such a firm for a price quote. It probably
wouldn't be worth it though ultimately ... I'm guessing it'd cost at least UK£25 per week.
The only cost effective way I think for me to be able to run Snow Leopard or Lion, would be with a standard
built PC running a Intel dual core or quad core CPU, and equivalent tech specs of a Mac Pro system. I do
believe there are ways and means of getting such a system to run a genuine retail edition of Mac OS X,
but there's no guarantee that it'd work exactly the same way as a real Mac system, if at all.
If I could get hold of a few grand UK£££, I probably would consider buying a Mac Pro workstation/tower from
an Apple Store, but given what BOXX workstations have to offer, I'd sooner spend the cash on one of those.
