Well, I pre-ordered VPC 7 from MacConnection when they were doing the pre-order deal a few weeks ago. Unfortunately it looks like it will not be released until October or later, and I needed it before the end of August for my programming class. My essential question is should I deal with the wait and hold out for VPC 7 hopefully in October, or should I go for VPC 6 now and hope it works well enough for me. I need it for the sole purpose of programming windows apps using Visual Studio.NET 2003, mainly in Visual Basic.NET. I have a brand new Powerbook with the following specs: - 1.5GHZ 15" Powerbook - 128MB ATi Radeon 9700 - 1GB PC2700 DDR RAM - 80GB 5400RPM Hard Drive I would really appreciate some advice from people who are using it now, and anyone who has experience with something like this. Thanks a lot!
