    I am interested in purchasing a Mac Book to use for business purposes. However, we use Mapics AS400 software at the office. What I'm curious about is whether or not there would be any problems installing the Windows based AS400 software on the mac book? Is there a listing of software limitations with boot camp?

    In addition, we use Microsoft Outlook for email. Would I also be able to access Outlook?

    Thank you!

    Bootcamp IS Windows so there are no more software limitation than you would have on a Dell.

    People always talk about it being beta. When windows is running the only thing beta is the hardware drivers. They are decent but could potentially cause some flakiness using things like bluetooth.

    I'll second everything said above. Under Boot Camp, there is no difference from any other Windows computer, so all Windows applications that would otherwise run without issues will work just fine on the Mac.

    The only thing beta is the Boot Camp software itself, most of the drivers in the package are completely stable and are even shared by some other PCs, only some are actually written by Apple.

    I've run bootcamp on my intel macs for like 6-8 months now and its been just like running Windows on any other computer.
