    Hmm, a pretty interesting article.

    Now, the question remains: Why would anyone install Vista? :rolleyes:

    There's a lot of answers to that I guess. Try see how Windows users have to cope? Or maybe just for the hell of it. :p

    Either way, there's going to be someone new to Macs. :rolleyes:

    Was hardly the most compelling review I've read, but useful nontheless.

    Vista is nice, I like it. I'll be putting it on my mac in the coming days.

    Only reason I have Vista on my MBP is for Boot Camp, and my Battlefield 2 weakness. So, I pretty much have Vista Ultimate to play one game :) Of course, if I had paid retail for Vista, the :) would probably be a :(

    Oh I have a question; how does BF2 run on a MBP? I have a 2.16ghz 15" 2gb model.

    Cheers in advance!

    Aha I tried to keep it short and sweet. It was mainly for very new switchers who want to know if they should invest in Vista or not. :)

    ZDnet has an article about notebook battery life with Vista using Aero - it is very poor.

    So how does battery life look on a MB or MBP running Vista? Anyone installed Vista yet?
