Best Mac/PC option for Articulate

Jul 10, 2023

Hi all,

I really like Articulate, but using it on my Mac through Parallels has been a nightmare. I am wondering if there is a better option or if I should just invest in a PC. If so, what's a decent PC I can purchase that I would primarily use for Articulate. 

P.S. I would really prefer Mac options

Hi Natasha,

Thanks for reaching out! I understand you are having issues with using Articulate software with Parallels. Here is an article with tips on Using Articulate Software on a Mac with Parallels Desktop.

Additionally, some members of the community found the solution presented in this video worked for them, so it is worth checking out as well. 

Also, even though the most common virtual environment used is Parallels, there are other options for you to check out. Apple Boot Camp and VMware are two more products that can be used with Articulate products.

If you do end up going with a PC, then we recommend switching to a machine that meets the system requirements needed to properly run Storyline 360

Lastly, if you are already running Parallels with the recommended settings and are still encountering performance issues, please reach out to our support team here. We’ll be glad to take a look at your setup and figure out how we can improve things.

I hope this helps!
