I'm a first time poster, so bear with me. So after much contemplation, significant research, feedback from mac users, I've decided I'm going to buy the macbook polycarbonate over a Sony Viao. I love apple macbooks because they seem straightforward, no gimmicks, simple, durable and more convenient than a pc for a college kid like me. But I'm very attached to windows and I'm when Windows 7 came out, I was/am super stoked to use it to the extreme! (I didn't buy a laptop when vista came out because it was crap) Now macbooks have this bootcamp thing, and parallel and stuff like that. It seems like I can use windows on a macbook when I need to/want to conveniently? Is this true? My biggest problem is that I don't know if macbook will be fully compatible with running Windows 7 64 bit. I stress the 64 bit just because that's how I'd like to run Windows 7, I don't wanna run 32 bit. -First thing, is the new macbook compatible with 64 bit then? I searched so much, but found only 1 quote which suggests it isn't. HEre is the quote: (from link:http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r23270490-Beginner-Boot-Camp-Windows-7-x64-on-new-white-Macbook) 'Looks like the problem is the drivers on the OS X disk that you install in windows aren't 64bit drivers, they're 32bit drivers! In other words, you'd be stuck without a working trackpad (and maybe improper GPU drivers.. though I HIGHLY doubt that one). I'm using the plain x86 version, and it works great! dunno what to say, maybe your disk is newer than the old macbook disks and has better drivers, after all you do have the same kinda trackpad a MBP does.' -So, if the macbook can boot 64 bit Windows 7, then is 2GB ram enough for it? I'll upgrade to 4GB after the ram isn't $90 to upgrade, that's too much for me right now. -I hear that the battery goes down on macbooks when you run windows 7. How bad is this? -I'm gonna use mac os for internet, office 2008, music, so I won't need windows 7 that much. But up to how much of an extent can I use windows 7 without defeating the purpose of buying a macbook?
