Ok... new guy obviously, and I'm thinking about getting a 17" Macbook Pro based on just the hardware. It will run Windows Vista ONLY. I've used OSX, and I don't care for it, I'm a Windows guy (and Linux to a lesser extent), and I love the hardware on this notebook, but since it's an Apple machine, I figure I'd ask about it. I want this over any other brand laptop because of the following: - 1920x1200 display - Slot loading optical drive - Magnetic anti-trip power plug (dumbfounded why all notebooks don't have this) - DVI port (as well as the gfx hardware to actually use a high-res 2nd display) - backlit keyboard - Drop sensor that turns the hard drive off when dropped (again, why does any laptop lack this?) There's more.. but those are the main points. Again, please spare me the whole Windows vs OSX debate, that's not why I'm here. This machine would run Windows and Windows only. I understand the following problems may be in place: - I'd need to use OSX to install Bootcamp to get Windows on this machine - I understand I would need to keep OS X Leopard on this machine, to maintain Bootcamp. - I understand not all hardware works with the Bootcamp drivers in Vista, I just don't remember which ones. - No 2nd button, and if I remember right, OSX Tiger Bootcamp drivers for Vista/XP didn't support 2 finger right clicks (big fan of trackpad clicking anyway... would love this on my existing windows laptop) - I understand HFS and NTFS are incompatible and that transferring files back and forth between OSX and Vista should I need to, might be a pain in the ass. That's all I can think of for now. If you have experience running Vista on an MBP and can advise someone who wishes to do the same, any feedback is wonderfully appriciated.
