Using macbook pro as mac leopard daw and at the office where i need to run outlook , work, excel, occasionally photoshop to check out designers work. for home just got the sonnet Tempo SATA ExpressCard/34 (couldn't find a better one) , owc mercury elite 750 gb hd with 32 mb cache 7200 rpm , logic 8 , mstand from raindesigninc.com , mac usb keyboard from what i'm reading i am guessing i need to boot up into xp to access the most ram. I noticed the mbp would be warmer above the keys in that stripe b4 the monitor part but above the f1-12 keys . i found a program to contorl fan speed etc with cpu usage, couldn't find drivesr for the vga display and other things and good urls ? tried googling a lot today , it runs slow without a vga driver if i drag a window aorund its not smooth. is it smooth in parallels (read u only get 1 gb ram )or vm?
