I'm a switcher on the fence, about to take a new job where I'll be needing to manage a Windows 2000 network and develop web apps (is Microsoft ASP) . Any thoughts on using a TiBook (or newer if they are ever updated) for all this?

Also I would want to use Visual Studio.Net (for web development) which would require Virtual PC... is this going to be just wonderful on a mac or am I going to break down in frustration, run out screaming and get a Dell?

(BTW, I'm going against the grain with the Mac approach - the job is at a school with an all Win network.)

MS has a free app called Remote Desktop Connection that lets you use a Windows machine over the network. While this probably isn't quite what you were looking for, you might find it useful.
