    Could I buy the upgrade edition and put it on my Mac with either bootcamp or parallels? Or do I need to buy the full version?

    Yea, that's $200. Plus $59 for Parallels from Best Buy this week on sale. I don't think its worth it..If I need to use a "windows" program in my business classes, I will just use the computer labs.

    Doesnt putting Windows on your Mac sacrifice the excellent battery life you have and the speed?

    Buy the OEM version. It's like 90 bucks..

    Putting Windows on your computer doesn't "sacrifice" battery life. If you're in Mac OS X, it's not going to be a different. If you're in Windows, you'd get the same battery life that you would get with a laptop of the same size and specs running Windows. You can customize the energy saving settings in Vista.
