    Sorry for the stupid newbie question but... have all issues with running Windows XP with BootCamp on the new Santa Rosa MBPs been resolved? I see that Apple released v1.3 of BootCamp which has new drivers, but apparently some people are still having problems. If I buy a new 15" MBP, install BootCamp 1.3, and load WinXP Pro SP2, will it work properly? By that I mean the display, keyboard, trackpad, network, CD/DVD, USB, etc. all function normally, without locking up, crashing, or other weirdness? If Windows XP has some limitations, does Vista Business or Ultimate (32-bit) work any better?
