    I'm about to purchase a new 15" unibody MBP, and I'm trying to figure out which version of Windows to use for gaming via bootcamp. I'm going to go with XP over Vista, but are there any differences between XP Pro and XP Home that are worth noting?

    Also, is there anything else I should know about using Windows for gaming on the MBP?

    Xp pro is way better. IMO. more nerd features. Unless you are completely an end user. if you are wanting to more then gaming, get xp pro. but if it is strictly gaming, you probably wont tell a difference.

    Well, if I would only ever use Windows for gaming and running programs that won't run on OSX, will the extra "nerd features" not really matter?
