AutoCAD does not run on Mac O

AutoCAD does not run on Mac OS, as far as I know... However you can run it in Parallels, or with Bootcamp, or possibly with Wine...

Wine is an interpreter for windows executables that allows you to run windows programs in the Mac OS, basically. It doesn't have perfect compatibility however, so it might work or it might not. I would try Crossover, it works better for me.

It's just a version of Wine that is tweaked to be a bit easier to use and it just seems to work much better for me at least...

the new apples apparantly run windows, therefore autocad

i think you are referring to the old macs, the new ones run windows on a partition and i would like to know if it is as easy and seemless as they say....are you saying you use autocad using Crossover? kind thanks

Well if you don't mind bootin

Well if you don't mind booting into windows every time you want to use Autocad, then that will work, yes.
