Intuit to revive QuickBooks for Mac

Four years ago, Intuit Inc. announced they would no longer support QuickBooks for the Mac -- a decision that generated a lot of ill will toward Intuit. Today the company is announcing that has a multi-year plan to develop and support a new Mac OS X compatible version of their small business accounting software.

"We listened to our customers and they have spoken loud and clear," said Dan Levin, vice president and general manager of QuickBooks Financial Solutions. "They want a Mac OS X compatible version of QuickBooks. We're thrilled to be giving customers what they've been asking for."

Intuit plans an updated version of QuickBooks for Mac in the first quarter of next year. QuickBooks Pro Edition 5.0 for Mac will be built for Mac OS X and will also support Mac OS 9, Levin said. Intuit also expects to release a new version of QuickBooks for Mac on an annual basis. Intuit last released QuickBooks Pro 4.0 for Mac, which the company continues to support.

Though details about the updated product aren't yet available today, you can keep up-to-date on new developments and announcements online.

Since the last new version of QuickBooks for the Mac in 1998, several other companies have jumped in to fill the small business accounting void. Among the companies are MYOB and NetLedger.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
