Thread title really sez it all... I'm looking for any cases where someone has successfully convinced a very picky (soon to be even possibly worse) corporate IT department into letting them attach & use their personal Mac to the nestork as their primary work machine. We're even changing from Cisco VPN to a Citrix environment soon, and possibly MAC address registration to allow only company-bought machines (I VPN from the home iMac now and use Entourage with great success; also support our Unix customers through a back-end ssh connection and a Terminal session). I'd like to take the MacBook that's arriving tomorrow and use it as the one laptop (to rule them all ), partitioning off about 40GB for an NTFS partition and XPSP2 install. I'm pretty much willing to give IT full sway over that partition, including letting them set admin rights as if it were a company Dell, not connect except as a booted Windows box, whatever. I just want to use the machine of my choice - at my own expense, mainly because there's additional work I want to accomplish using (for now, anyway) the iLife suite for the company's benefit. So, any stories? What were the terms of the use? Any written agreements? Compromises?
