I've been getting allot of questions about what I think about WindowsXP running on the new Intel Powered Macs.
I hope it works!
I've owned LOTS of laptops in my life, and I can't say that I really LOVED any of them.
I used to use Dell, but they were VERY heavy, (though I still have a couple old one and the're still chug away.
I've had a BUNCH of HPs and owning lots of HP hardware has done NOTHING to make me a fan of HP. I had an NX6110 that died twice, I have an NC8000 which has been replaced twice and had a number of problems.
I've had a couple of IBM Thinkpads. IBM makes good hardware but EXPENSIVE and not cutting edge as far as speed goes. (I currently have a n IBM Tablet on loan from the Tablet Product Group and it ROCKS !!!)
I've had 2 Gateways and was reasonably happy with both laptops. ( I have a Gateway Media Center PC which is awesome.)
I have owned 4 Toshiba's and currently have an M55 - which is my favorite Laptop to date. (My only complaint is that the screen, while a BEAUTIFUL display, is not super high resolution.)
Over than past year I've been to a number of PHP events and have looked with envy at the Apple Powerbooks.
They look SLICK and people seem to love them.
My questions are....
- Will there be drivers.
- Will there be a "Right Mouse" solution
- Will Apple or Microsoft Support Windows on the Mac
- Will Apple OEM Windows.
- Will there be any software compatibilities.
The new Dual Core PowerBooks start at about $2400 so until there is evidence that WindowsXP is viable for daily use on a Mac, it's still a bit of a luxury.....
But, I could tell my wife it's WORK RELATED. 🙂
