I'm planning on installing bootcamp with vista. I've got 4GB of ram on a new MBP. Should I go with the vista home premium upgrade? Or do I need the full version and not the upgrade disc?

I'd get the Windows 7 RC 64-bit.

Agreed... the Windows 7 RC 64 without question

Google it and download from the MS site

Thanks! But if I need to install Vista, do I need to buy the full version? or only the upgrade version?

If you don't already have XP installed, then I would think you need the full version.
