I'm off abroad on business soon and am looking to buy a laptop at the airport for duty free reasons. Macbook pro is the first choice but i need to know if it'll run some software, mainly java apps and also a win XP developed app. The easy option would be to buy a normal laptop as i know this'll work without any additional software. Fogive the dumb questions mac is not my first language: Out the box can the macbook run windows apps? i.e. does it have a built in emulator? Do i need to install the likes of XP onto the mac if i want to boot using this bootcamp option? Are all drivers available on any XP install disk or does it require an internet connection to download them? Can i run any web based java app as well? In essence when i unpack this abroad will i need anything else with me to make it work.
