Hey Saul.  I’ve been using MacBooks of various vintages with Bootcamp and Win7 
to run Perseus software for years.  Works well.  I went this route because 
using Parellels, when I tried it many years ago, just couldn’t ‘emulate’ the 
USB port fast enough to ‘keep up’ with the Perseus.  There’s a good help 
section on-line and the Bootcamp software is good about talking you through 

Once thing you should keep in mind is that ‘newer’ MacBooks and MacOS will 
force you into using Win 10 — bad idea!  I’m not sure what Mac OS is the last 
one to run Win 7 but there MAY be ways to work around it if you have a newer 
OS.  Google is your friend.
