ACT! on Mac with Parallels or VMWare syncing back to central database?

Can anyone confirm that I can install ACT! onto a Mac notebook using Parallels or the VMWare emulator and sync to a central database?

Client currently has a Windows laptop syncing to the central database, needs to replace the flaky laptop, wants a Mac.

I did a setup like that three or four years ago, worked fine.

Kevin, I have several customers that use this setup.  They are in a mixed environment of PC's and MAC's.  Parallels is what they have used and it seems to work fine.  Brenda

Thank-you Brenda and Roy for your responses - that makes me feel more comfortable recommending that solution.  I'm going to actually do the Parallels installation and ACT! so that I can become more familiar with Macs - they're starting to pop up more and more in my accounts.
