If you have the Mac version of Quickbooks then you can just move your files from the PC over and they will open. If you are wanting to run the PC version of Quickbooks on your new Mac you will need Parallel software and Windows XP to be loaded onto the Mac.
The Apple site has lots of great support information including a section on switching from a PC to a Mac and what all you need to know.
I made the switch a few years ago after losing the 3rd hard drive on my laptop in 2 years. Just got a new Macbook Pro laptop a couple of weeks ago; my older G4 laptop has been wonderful never crashing; never losing a thing; I do back up occassionally just in case. I think it is very easy and intuitive to use....although I did pick up a Mac for Dummies to help.
One day will use my old PC for target practice....I dream of yelling "pull" and the laptop flying into the air!

Jay, Macs are almost VIRUS FREE. PC's get them right and left regardless of your virus protection program. Once you learn about your Mac, you'll never EVER return to the PC platform.
Teri, started with Mac early on, then back to PC. Wised up and returned to Mac. as their products are so much better now than in the 80's. I threw my PC off the top off my tallest (90') grain silo and watched it SMASH! It was so great!! Years of frustration gone in one good heave! Good riddance to PC's!!

I, too, started with Macs. My first one was a Performa 550 with 5 MB of RAM and a blazing 33 mHz that I got around 1993. Somewhere along the line I switched to PC's, never really liked them but needed some of the software. Very glad I went back to the Mac...only regret is that it took me so long to go back!
