I personally like DNAstar's Lasergene 99.  It has alot of very nice new 
features including downloading directly from NCBI into any of the modules.  
Also for sequencing people you can take the curve files directly off the 
sequencer and use (and view) them in DNAstar.  Their primer design program is 
the best I've seen.  I've used this in both Mac and Win environments and 
haven't seen any difference.
