Okay I have been lurking around the forums for awhile but I finally am getting my mac. I have been a windows user and this will be my first mac. I am getting the $2499 MBP. The main question I have is what do you think is better Parallels or VMware Fusion. That and the other question is iWork or Microsoft office 2008 for mac. I will tell you a little about what I will be doing with it. I am going to college for multimedia so I will most likely use boot camp for windows when I have to use it for 3d art work and animations, but I heard you can reuse the windows install from boot camp in parallels from some people is that true? So what I would do is papers, 2d and 3d art, animation and some gaming. Is there really anything I should be worried about with the new macs or any tips that will make the transition smoother?
