You will need a SCSI interface to use on both Computers.  There may be a
difference in the software for the MAC and PC.  You will want to call and
check to see if software is included for both platforms.  If not, you will
beed to purchase a seperate scanning utility that recognizes your brand of
scanner.  There are a lot of third party Software packages for either
platform.  You amy also be able to buy the MicroteK software seperately if
it is not included for both platforms.
