    hi guys so like many of you may know, im planning to get a MBP (250 GB)

    now for a while i have been thinking about partitioning the hard-drive (but im not sure i really want too..)
    so can you help me answer some question:

    1. i heard that the battery life on windows on the MBP is not very good
    2. is it worth it, because im sure OSX can do a lot of things (and this is for college, [my guess is no)]
    3. so from the following, which should i get, if i do partition my Hard drive

    a) Windows 7 (premium probably for the windows XP)~i have some important programs that work really good in XP (like not even compatibility setting fixes it on my Vista)
    b)Windows Vista (hah, right!)
    c) Windows XP
    d) Linux (now please be specific if you choose linux. im thinking ubuntu - but thats the only one i know )

    i might not even just looking for ideas and tips, etc :p

    If you have Steam then BootCamping is the way to go and is very much worth it

    There is Steam for Mac but not all games are supported yet.

    Get Windows 7. The latest and greatest!

    Mac OS X can do a lot of things.

    It depends on what you want Windows for.

    I'm currently running windows 7 on my macbook pro 13" through bootcamp as well as mac os x.

    Its also a 250GB hard drive, i 90GB's to windows and the rest to mac, (all depends on which your going to use the most).

    Windows run's grand for me, if you are going to do it use either XP or Windows 7 as Vista in my honest opinion is poo.
