Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem as best as you can. Don't simply post "XYZ Isn't working". What is it you expected or wanted? What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi Folks,

I am considering purchasing an i-Mac to run power project.  I will partition it to run windows.  I am just wondering if the 21.5inch screen is sufficient.  I am moving into free-lance and intend transporting the machine in a trolley suitcase.

Hi Joe,

I was recently using Powerproject on a 12 inch Windows tablet.  It worked fine - I wouldn't want to use it to setup a new project of any considerable size, but was great for showing sections of a plan or editing parts (like progress).  I even pulled up a BIM model to show a 4D sequence in Powerproject. 

I suspect the 21.5 inch screen will be fine if you only need to show Powerproject on screen, but many users run dual screens so they can have Powerproject on one, and related documents on the other.

If you're in the UK and don't want to partition the hard-drive to run Windows, you could also look at the SaaS version of Powerproject (though of course that relies on a good internet).

Cheers,

Ben @ Powerproject
