Hi, through your guys' help on the forum, I ordered a entry-level macbook pro, hopefully it would arrive this weekend. I plan to use windows through vmware fusion, and know that it's better to install bootcamp before vmware fusion after reading the threads of "windows on mac". I plan to allocate 50 GB and 1GB RAM to windows, and leave 200 for mac, basically I will use windows for matlab, Micro visual studio, office and msn. Athough searching the webites, not sure should I partition the the total 250GB into two parts through unity in mac before I start installing bootcamp, or I can allocate the space for windows while installing bootcamp? After get the mac, I think, the first thing I would do is to get matlab installed in windows as I want to be able to work on it at home for uni project. I am going to get one copy of matlab and windows xp service pack2 from university. And what programs do you use in your mac and what would you firstly do to start using your macs? I am new to mac and would like to make use the best of it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
