    No one did that B4, anyway if you go for snow leapord, you can still use duo boot into win7. Have the best of both world

    Same as me. I used Macbook before. Still can't use to the system. Eventually, switch back to Windows. You can use MAC software: parallel for both OS interface.

    I've thought of it but having two OS take up precious space.

    But seriously, compare hardware to hardware, any differences between Mac and PC?

    IC, Think best you go for a pure PC lah, even if Mac is running on Intel CPU, the internal still design by Apple. Logic thinking, you can run pure Windows on MAc machine but short come is the driver and also the single buttom touch pad and not the mention the re-mapping of the keyboard.

    Best advise, RUn a pure PC configuration for Win

    I think it will work in the Window 7. You may try installing the drivers in someone who have Window 7 to see it works.

    If they don't in Vista, as you mentioned, then very likely it won't work in W7 too. Wait for the W7 driver from the cam manufacturer. Because W7 is actually a "tidy up" version of Vista.

    Hardware-wise, the newer Macs are running on Intel CPU similar to that of PC and so the difference is minimal. The major differences are mainly the user interface and how the OS manages the resources, the file system, and so on, OS X is performing better in this area, though Windows is catching up but we dunno what OS X 10.7 would be like. I am looking forward to it.

    On a mac system, you can set up a shared folder whereby Windows and Mac can access the files there... so all your data can reside in that folder.

    A difference beween mac and PC machines is the support for video cards. Macs are a generation or 2 old in terms of what video cards can be used in them.

    Had done a clean install without boot camp before. Wiped out os x then installed win XP. That was when i was sitting in Singapore Poly certifying my own laptop and a guy came in with a 10.4 which did not have boot camp.
