We have the Eagle Eye II and have it linked to our Macintosh's through an
Appleshare network.  The other possibility is loading the tif file onto a disk
and have software on your Mac that will read IBM-formatted disks.

I personally do not like the light pen configuration (ergonomics and all
that)so we have both pen and mouse hooked up.

Some people have already loaded the TIF files into Apple software and prepared
quickie overhead transparencies and the like for presentations.

To be totally fair, if you are looking at a system like this, Fotodyne and
others now have their own systems.  Fotodyne's is already Mac-based if that
might turn you on.
