Hi, old-timers here. I haven't hung out here for almost eight years. The missus and I celebrated our eighth wedding anniversary yesterday. We're getting old and I'm getting fat

My wife is returning to China in a few weeks to visit with her father. I encouraged her to visit him while he is alive because he is almost 90 now.

While she's there, she hopes to set up online banking with her bank in Guangxi. The bank uses USB thumb drives for banking security.

She will need a new computer to use whatever it is that the bank gives her. Does anyone know if bank security systems work with Apple IoS, Chromebook, or Android operating systems; or are we stuck with using Windows?

I'd rather buy Lao Po a Mac than a PC even though Macs cost more because she knows how to use it.

Guidance appreciated.

Good to see the forum is still up and running.
Hope to return to China again soon.

GUEST40882 Hi Griz, as far as I know, only CMB (China Merchant Bank) and ICBC (Industrial and Commercial Bank of China) can support ios system. So if your wife use a bank card from these two banks, you may use the Mac. Or you can install a virtual machine with Windows system on the Mac. Hope it helps.

Thank you for the help. We decided on a Windows computer.
