So I love my macbook pro - absolutely LOVE osx. But I am going to be building a windows desktop soon for gaming, photoshop, animation, etc. Can't afford a Mac Pro, so I don't have too much of an option. I'm sort of looking into running a hackintosh but I won't bring that up here b/c my guess is that we're not allowed to discuss it? Basically I want to know what my options are for using a Windows box for games and intensive tasks while using the Macbook Pro for all the other stuff (web browsing, ilife, etc.) So My options that I was considering were these: Run both windows box and macbook pro at the same time using a DVI/USB/Audio KVM switch. This could work, but with things like external drives and other peripherals plugged into the KVM, I think it would not be the safest or most convenient way (ex. how does sleep work with a KVM'd mac?) Running OSX as a virtual machine in Vista - not sure if this is possible, or technically legal. OR, I just had this thought - if I networked my laptop and my PC together, could I work on the PC and have the Mac as a remote-access machine? It would be right there, but just connected via the network so I didnt have to deal with KVM boxes and I could just run it as a window in Vista? Anyone know what the performance hit would be? Thanks for your thoughts!
