    I have a SR 2.2 Macbook Pro and I was just wondering...which would make more sense? Running Office 2004 through Rosetta, or Office 2003/2007 through Fusion or Parallels? Which one would be less taxing on the computer? I can't imagine Rosetta to be all that bad but I'm no expert on this.

    I would go with using Rosetta. I think running one program using emulation would be less taxing then emulating a whole OS.

    yeah I plan to get 2008 in January. But till then, was wondering what the best option would be. I've been running 2004 till now but the laptop...sorry notebook, gets pretty hot when I'm using it. That's why I was exploring options...

    Thanks for the tips though. Guess I'll just stick with it for another 2-3 months.

    Not quite. This is only if you purchase it within certain dates.
