    Hey, I just got a 2.33GHz MBP...its the coolest things ever. I have a problem though...everytime I restart my computer whether in OS X or XP, it always goes to XP...I have to hold the option key to make it go into OS X, but sometimes it doesn't let me and just boots up XP anyhow...can anyone help me out here?

    I've run into that problem as well using friends' intel macs. Usually the problem ends up being that I haven't pushed the option key soon enough. You almost need to be pushing it before you even turn it on, it goes quick.

    I think you can change which OS it boots into automatically in the Startup Disk options under System Preferences. I think the windows side has an equivalent as well.

    I'm not sure about the Windows side, but in OSX you go to System preferences, Startup Disk, then choose Mac OSX instead of the Windows partition. That should fix it.

    It is indeed fixed using Startup Disk in either Mac OS or Windows.
