    You can buy a copy of Windows XP on eBay for US$50 or less; any version will do, as long as it is a FULL version, and not a recovery or reinstallation disk

      You can buy a copy of Windows XP on eBay for US$50 or less; any version will do, as long as it is a FULL version, and not a "recovery" or "reinstallation" disk from a hardware vendor.

      I prefer VMware Fusion to Parallels (less clutter on the OS X desktop) but they're both perfectly OK. Both let you run WordPerfect for Windows in a window on the OS X desktop, or even full-screen.

        MacUpdate has a promotion going for the next three days where you get Parallels and some other Mac software for $50 (Parallels goes for ~$80 on their homepage, amazon currently shipping for $51). Find the bundle deal at: http://www.mupromo.com/

        Fusion is included in these type deals every once in awhile too, though these deals only happen once a quarter and never know what will be included.
