I know, it's a sin... but.... I'm a MAC and my wife is a PC. Her PC is dying and she wants a new laptop. I'm trying to talk her into a Macbook Pro, as I'll be able to service it better, and I think it's just a more stable machine. Her work environment uses PCs though and there are certain scientific programs that run on Windows she'll need. So, I'm curious to hear more about running Windows on a mac. More or less, does the Windows operating systems run like it would if on a PC laptop? I have an installation copy of Windows XP. What's needed these days to run Windows on a mac laptop? Do I need any third party software or does the Mac laptop have all of the necessary drivers required to start up Windows? Do I need to split the Mac laptop harddrive into 2 partitions: one for Mac install and one for PC? Thanks so much!
