Is it possible to put a Windows application on my MBP?
It's possible to install Windows on your MBP using BootCamp, or run Windows within OS X by using Parallels or VMWare. Your choice.
Yeah, I know I can do that, but that defeats the whole purpose of having a mac.
well since the apps are written for a different operating system, how else could they run?
You could try crossover, it works for some apps, I havn't tried it personally, but I would like to as soon as I have an intel Mac.
You could also use CrossOver, which seems to be what you're looking for.
Well....doesn't wanting to install Windows apps on your Mac defeat the whole purpose of owning one too, from that perspective?
I understand what you are saying, but there was one game that I already own that is only in Windows. I tried it with Crossover, but because you launch it through the CD it wouldn't work.
THen use Parralels, Boot Camp or VMware those are your only options
If you've already got a copy of Windows, you can use Boot Camp for free to run it. VMWare's Fushion has a $40 pre order price until it launches in August, but games would probably run better through Boot Camp.
I guess that "Cider" product EA is going to use is just for developers (?)
