First off I am looking to buy a MBP and have never owned an apple before. I will need to run various types of architectural and estimating software in the near future (Autodesk products, takeoff, SureTrack) which, right now, are only compatible with windows . I have read about Bootcamp and installing windows on an partitioned piece of the hard drive. I had a couple questions regarding the procedure. Does this void Apple's warranty? Do i need a bigger HD if I intend on doing this? Is it reliable? Is it recommended? What are the key disadvantages?
