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.
