Default ESC Compatability

Can anyone tell me, are any of the new ESCs interfaces compatible with MACs? I know Speed Passion, Tekin, Novak, etc., have interfaces compatible with windows or Vista but are any compatible with a MAC OS?

Only way you will get it to work with Mac is to run it with bootcamp and a copy of windows. Not worth it for them to do a version for Mac when Windows is more common.

That is understandable. Sucks, but understandable.

If you have an Intel Mac, you can run VirtualBox (like Parallels, but free) and not reboot using Bootcamp.

The cheapo XP netbooks work well enough, too.

I have a "cheap" netbook running Vista and it works well for speedo software as well as my VW diagnostics software. I rarely even use my laptop anymore.

I guess a netbook would be easier to take to the track than a laptop anyway.
