I have to do some complicated (for me) work with excel macros. At work I have a hateful 5.5kg (that's 13 of your American pounds) monstrosity of a Toughbook which runs, no, limps and stumbles Vista with 2gb ram. At home, I have an 11" air. I have excel 2011 at home, 2003 at work. Macros mostly don't translate, and since my users will all have windows, it makes sense to build the macros in windows. I can't get the hang of right-clicking, and especially dragging scroll bars with a mac trackpad in windows 8, and the screen is a little small for large spreadsheets, but it's just right for everything else, and I can cope with one small thing. Will multi-touch be any better with windows 7? Better with parralels than bootcamp? The cost of a windows and office licence is about as much as a cheap new machine with windows and office preinstalled. Should I just buy a new one, with actual buttons on the trackpad, and a large screen?
