    Hi

    I am plannin to buy the newer version of the macbook, prbably the $1299 one.

    But my mom prefers to work on XP.
    So is it the same way as before to install XP on the newer macbooks?

    And, to fullfill my programmin needs, i wud also prefer to install Linux along side with Mac n XP. Will i be able to install Linux n triple boot Mac/XP/Linux?

    If at all i can install linux, cud u please specify some good tutorial links for it?

    Thanx

    you can use bootcamp to install windows

    i dont know about tri-boot but you can also use like virtualbox, which is a free alternative to vmware or parallesl and run linux insde osx
