I am planning to buy a Tibook. Want to be able to use 3d cad programs (NT based) and play pc games with activeX. What is the best solution for me? Are there suitable pc emulators that support openGL and ActiveX. Would one pc emulator do the trick or do I need one emulator for the cad and a nother one for the games? Are the emulators fast enough?

The best one out there is VirtualPC, though I don't know if it will fully support all that, someone with a copy really needs to give you some input. From what I have seen, it is pretty fast, but not like having an acutal Windoze machine. It is emulation after all, and it has come a long way, but an emulator can never give all the advantages the real thing can.
I always use protection when fscking my Mac... Do you?

Virtual PC 4.0 is really the only emulator out there. It is fast for normal applications but cant run 3d programs or games well. You might want to try and get a hold of VPC 3.0. I heard that that can still do 3d. Good luck!
