is there a downsized version of quickbooks

i/ve been successfully and satisfactorily running an ancient PC version of quickbooks pro, 3.0 if i recall correctly. it does EVERYTHING i could ask for.
i've just migrqted to an iMac and would like to find a bookkeeping program that will be simple AND import mu QBB or QBW files. it's not that i don't want to spend the money to buy quickbooks 2013 for windows, but tht it is such an overkill program for my simple SOHO operation. any thoughts?
thanks, Arthur

Looking @ ebay, some there are $10 for an earlier version. Set it up to only include what features you need.

We use Quickbooks 9 on macintosh (10.6.8) by using VirtualBox (free) and putting Windows XP on it. [For security reasons, we don't browse the Internet from that virtual computer]. Then we can load the QB program on that virtual window. We pass reports to a shared folder on Mac and it works fine with our printer for printing checks, etc. I think I recently read that XP on VirtualBox doesn't work with the latest Mac OS, in which case you would have to run a paid version like Parallels or boot into windows on power-up.
I have never heard anything nice about QuickBooks for Macintosh.
