    I'm thinking of getting a mac pro and have some questions -

    1) Does Bootcamp properly support Vista 64-bit ? If so how stable is it (don't want any crashes caused by poor drivers - really want rock solid stability under Vista) ?

    2) Will the Mac Pro support any SATA hard drive or would I have to buy specific models/brands ?


    TIA. :)

    1) Yes, there support for Vista 64. I have experienced stability as rock solid.

    2) It will support any standard drive, although a few firmware problems were reported. If my memory serves me well seagate drives were affected.

    We have 3 new 8 core Mac Pros at work running Vista x64 Business. I'm using one of them.

    Vista x64 works beautifully on these machines. The 8 cores all get used nicely and Vista makes good use of the RAM as well.
