    hi all,
    I have a need to use a mac to develop db's for both mac and pc. Currently, I use Virtual PC on both a G5 desktop and a G4 17" Powerbook. I can do what I need to in Virtual PC to check screen issues.... fonts, spacing, etc., but when I try to print from Virtual PC, it still prints like a Mac.

    Does anyone know if printing on a MacBook Pro in either BootCamp or Parallels (preferred) will be the same experience as actually using a PC?

    purely guessing, bootcamp should give u real windows experience, while any virtual machine may have problem here and there, coz they are not accessing the hardware directly.

    I used Bootcamp and InDesign CS3 to produce a 150 page document and printing was exactly how it was on a normal Windows computer.
