    Today I was at a tradeshow. As I was walking the booths I saw an MBP driving a large monitor. They were demoing their XP-based software. Guess the PC laptops were too kludgy for their tastes. (The second computer was a standard desktop).

    As a side note. Although Dell was in full force @ the show, I saw a good deal of MBPs and MBs. No MBAs though.

    I've done that (running xp at a trade show on my MBP). We had to supply our own computers at my company, but the software only ran on PC's. I already had a MBP, so why purchase a windows machine when my MBP could run XP?

    Well, MBP & MB looks pretty, so why not? I don't really think it's a big deal though.

    We do the same thing...except we're using Mac Minis.
