    Hi all, for some time now I have used MS 2010 on a Windows 7 machine with BCM containing around 5500 contacts for my business. It works and I like it but I'm keen to take advantage of the small form factor with a 13" Mac Book Pro and the battery life it enjoys. Bearing in mind I own an iMac which is the family PC I am used to the OS on an apple product.

    So my questions are:
    1) Has anyone used for sometime Parallels or Fusion running MS Office heavily and had any issues?
    2) Are there any really good alternatives to MS Office and the add on BCM in the mac world?
    3) Using Windows in bootcamp, does the battery have the same life between charges as in Mac OS on a mac book pro?
    4).....wait for it :D When is the new mac book range going to be launched?? Ok silly question that!

    Thanks for your replies in advance.

    Tom

    I use Office in Fusion a lot on a 13" MBA with no performance issues
    It is an excellent solution for my needs to stay on one computer

    Thanks for the reply MacDawg, sounds like a plan then. Do you have a number of mail boxes in outlook?
