I am about to purchase a macbook pro with all likelihood and had a few concerns that I am in need of adive on. I am new to the Mac Operating System, usually mostly Windows and a bit of Linux and had some questions on a few things: My questions are: 1. As I am going to college for engineering I will need Windows with bootcamp/ Parallels, what kind of battery life does the new macbook pros, 15 inch run while under bootcamp with Vista/XP and does the batery life decrease with Parallels/ VM fusion open. 2. Are there ever any problems with licensing or any major flaws with bootcamp/ Parallels that cause programs not to work. 3. Does Office 08 suck, that is a bit of a concern for me as I do like Office 07 on my Windows machine. Thank-you for any answers you can give!
