    Hi everyone,

    I'll be buying my MBP soon, and I need Windows to be bootcamped for work. I decided on Vista rather than XP so that I can do some DX-10 gaming on the side.

    I have a general question for anyone who has installed the 64-bit version of Vista. I'm just wondering if there are any performance issues that I should be aware of (as bootcamp only has drivers made for the 32-bit Vista)? Are there any 3rd party drivers for the 64-bit version by now? What can I expect? Any problems, horror stories, or (hopefully) good experiences?

    Thanks in advance,

    Ado

    64-bit Windows is not supported under Boot Camp.

    Sorry for my ignorance...but is that a big shortcoming or no?
