I've been running Windows XP on my MBP for the better part of 2 years now. VirtualBox works flawlessly (and the price is right!).

While I've not played any games in the VM, it has handled everything else I've thrown at it quite nicely. That being said, my preference is always to use a native OS X app when available.

I have been using Parallels Desktop for a couple of years and the last versions work very well with Windows 7. I still prefer to turn off some of the Windows eye candy to help with speed and battery, but considering there aren't a lot of software that I HAVE to run on Windows, it's more than adequate.

I wanted to thank everyone for their advice. I greatly appreciate it. Still don't know what I will do for sure, but most likely I will buy a MBP

Just wondering if anybody have ever purchased a Lap Top from Shoppers Drug Mart? The reason I am asking is I have enough Shoppers Optimum Points to get $170.00 off of a purchase. I have seen a few different Lap Top advertised in their flyer.

You might want to mention what models are listed. I'd think that would be more important than where you buy them.

This is probably the best Lap Top Shoppers has ever offered. Its a HP Pavilion TouchSmart Sleekbook Notebook. No other details provided in flyer. Its going for $499.99. Flyer expired on December 20th.

I decided against the HP Pavilion Touch Smart Sleek notebook at Shopper because it didn't have a DVD Drive. Instead I went ahead and purchased the Toshiba 15.6" dual core 6GB 500GB Hard Drive for $429.00 Less $200.00 for Optimum Points. So it was $229.00 Plus Tax. The Model Number is PSCF6C-053002. I am happy with it so far. This is probably the best Lap Top that Shopper Drug Mart sells.
