Hey everybody, I'm going to college next year and seriously looking at the 13 in MBP. I think it's the perfect blend of portability, power, etc. However, I will need to run Windows 7 Professional, as I will need to run the app Minitab, which is for PC only. I was talking to a fellow classmate who i would consider a computer geek. He knows much more than i do and he explained how I could run 7 on a MBP. Here's what he said: 1.Buy MBP, VMWare 3, a copy of vista. 2. Install the vista into the VMWare 3 and have vista set up as the virtual machine. 3. Go to windows' students 741 webpage and "upgrade" to 7. 4.do the upgrade. 5. Done, now I can start VMWare3 with windows 7 and install any PC apps like Minitab and run with VMWare. Is this correct? Is there a simpler way? I am a bit concerned with the "upgrade" part of the procedure. I would like to install 7 from the get go but 299.99 for windows 7 pro is too expensive. Thanks!
