    Mac on CC3 - bootcamp/virtualisation?

    The music dept has some macbooks. We are an RM CC3 site and the teachers would like to access their Outlook etc from the macs.

    I'm thinking either Bootcamp or some virtualisation app like VirtualBox. Anyone used virtualisation to do this? Any comments or pointers very much welcomed.

    Thanks

    RM do an application (downloadable from support) to allow you to login to CC3 and access youíre my documents but I donít think it works on the new OS so RM are moving people to ADmitMAC.

    What about web based outlook on a MS exchange server? That should work on Safari OK.

    In the end I decided to use VirtualBox. Seems to work well. They get the Mac to do all the music things that you just can't do on PCs (sarcasm) but get to join the CC3 network as normal - access to their Outlook, shared areas, SIMS etc etc. They can be managed from RMMC as any other computer and with the Mac's virtualisation support it runs pretty slick
