I got Connectix VirtualPC for my 500 MHz PowerBook G4. It does work, but I'm
disappointed by the performance. Even an old 166 MHz PC laptop that I had
lying around was much faster than Virtual PC. It's too bad, because I really didn't
want to lug both a Mac and PC around, but I ended up doing just that because
the performance of VirtualPC was so frustrating.

Usually software isn't returnable, but if possible I'd recommend trying VirtualPC
before spending $150 to $200 on it.
