    With the beta release of bootcamp, Mac users can now run both windows and mac on their MBP.

    I just have two quick ones.

    1) I was wondering if bootcamp will work for Windows Vista, that is already released to manufactures, and will have a retail release around Feb 2007.
    Answer: Yes it can run it.

    2) I heard the new Mac OS will come with bootcamp. Do you konw when the new Mac OS will come out?
    Answer: No offical release date by Apple. First half of 2007.

    :cool:

    Edit: Updated answers for future reference if anyone needs it.

    It's easy to have a thread moved to the correct forum. Just click the Report Post icon [​IMG] next to one of the posts and explain where the thread should go. The moderators will be glad to move it for you.

    This applies both to the original poster and to anyone who notices the problem. You don't need to discuss it; just let us know. It's a simple problem and simple to fix.
