Hey all, I just made the leap and got my very first Apple, the new Macbook Pro, higher end 15 inch one (2.4 Ghz, 160 GB @ 5400, etc.), and as a recent convert I very much feel the need to leave the training wheels on and have Vista running on it (don't worry in a few months [weeks? days?] I'm sure I'll be a full convert). I bought Parallels 3.0, and was curious if someone could sum up the accumulated knowledge on how to run P3.0 / Boot Camp to make it work best. I don't play heavy games on it, but sometimes for school I run a few specialized programs like statistical software or the like. Nothing TOO grinding though. I think I'd like to set up my MS Office software on the Vista side (it doesn't make sense to buy copies of Office for both Mac and Windows, or is there some way around that if you buy one of the two?). I'm confident I'll be more comfortable doing my real work (docs, spreadsheets, etc.) on the Vista platform and my everyday life on the Mac platform, so some might say just run Boot Camp, but as a college student my everday life pretty much overlaps, so Parallels is a nice idea. So the question is if I'm not using real high-power applications on Vista, should I just install it on BootCamp and then be able to run it off of the virtual machine as well, since the problems of slowness running that way won't be such a problem for me? Will that slowness even be noticeable? Thanks so much to anyone who can offer their two cents (and to everyone else who's made it this far through the post too)!
