New Mac User - Quickbooks 2011

Recommended Posts

Hi all:

 

I recently purchased a MacBook Pro and have been advised to get Quickbooks. In a previous posting, it was mentionhed that there is a problem with this software for Mac. Is there a reason that perhaps I should consider before getting this item. I have a netbook that is on Windows. I was considering getting the Windows version only for this netbook and transfer any charts by USB to my Mac. Someone who is an Mac expert, suggested that perhaps I upload Parallel and Windows for my Mac and then I can use the Quickbooks for Windows. What are your opinions?

 

Thanks for any help I can get.

It entirely depends on what you want Quickbooks to do for you. QB for Mac has some limitations, but I've been using it (QB 2010) for about a year and a half with absolutely no problems. You actually don't need Parallels to run Windows on your Mac unless you want to be able to run both Windows and OSX at the same time; if you don't mind booting up into one OS at a time, all you need is a licensed copy of Windows and you can get yourself up and running.

 

If you're doing bookkeeping for clients, you'll want the Windows version, as you can't go from QB Mac back to Windows, but if it's just for your own business, I personally see no reason not to go with it.

Hi Leanne:

 

I will go ahead and go with Quickbooks since it is just for myself. Thanks for your help

Hello Heather C.

I also have a MacBook Pro (love it!) looking for a bookkeeping/accounting software. Is the QB 2011 working for you fine ? Are there any particulars to know before I purchase one too ? It would be just for myself/small business.

Thanks
