.. ..so what ? Since i'm finally about to get a macbook (that darkstar) from a local ..dealer in a few hours, i like to contribute some tasty details to the mad crowd. ..After getting paranoid with all the new infos, i told the dealer that i have to test ..the mac before i put the money on the table ..that way or adios amigos .. .. ..I'm a mac user from back in '94 but lately converted to the "Gates", my main ..interest lies in WinDos functionality ..and i'll tell you some really cool details. ..So everything here is seeing the macbook mainly from the dark side (windos), ..no french fries attached but hopefully some tasty info for you. .. ..Booting into windows, i felt a la maison ..quickly ckecking dual screens in the control panels, no problem second monitors as you know it ...BUT what's that ? .. ..There's a 200MB partition "hanging around". I don't know what happens if it gets deleted, i guess it's all about bootcamp. NEW: This partition is needed for WinXP, not so much for Vista (there it gets/can get deleted during intallation) Vista h/eats up your Macbook, so i'll stay with XP ...Let's do onboardsound .. ..ASIO works good via Asio4All 5 ms ..WOW (didn't do 3 ms but will do later) Headset microfone input works fine, no additional amplifing is needed (if i'm not wrong, it doesn't works unamplified on OSX ...additional PC partitions ? .. ..The MacBook windos install process gets in trouble during installing, if you have two partitions for windows. That means, for now you have to stick with one partion for the Gates. That has to be testet deeply ..i like hidden system partitions which can be bootet just for Music or Games. EDITIED: TRIPPLE BOOT with Linux works via the terminal as it is described on wiki.onmac.net http://wiki.onmac.net/index.php/Triple_Boot_via_BootCamp ...Juoni ? .. Runnin a really good Registry Cleaner Tool (RegCleaner by the Juoni Vuorio) system backgroundtasks can be seen ..WOW ..about 5 apple tools running in the background ..Windows time is now MacTime.exe ...WHAT NOISE ? .. Since i haven't seen any french fries coming out of the floppy bay, (okay) i now wanted the hear some serious NOISE coming out of the macbook ! Also cows and elepants (na!) should be heard (moooiing noise) from time to time ..BUT there wasn't anything. So w per minute (don't know the english) what the fan is able to do. That's really okay for me, since i could'nt hear much of any fan-activity on 2000-3000 rounds per minute ..No mooohhh ..WWOOOOW .. Sitting at the most calm place at the dealer office next door, hearing the awful noise of the LaserPrinter heating up two tables away i thought: Let's buy that thing ! and trash that 200Mb partition on the first run .. MacBook is cool as Pismo was ..and if you like the Gates of Darkness you can even switch ..that is the most cool feature on the planet today ! I won't switch to OSX again, BUT i've bought a Mac for running the Gates I guess i've seen the light ! ..
