This may be an age old question but I'll ask it anyway
We currently run an all windows setup:
Windows 2008 Server
Exchange 2007 (outlook clients)
Windows xp and windows 7 Desktop
Office 2007 (heavy PowerPoint and publisher use)
And we have about 100 users across 3 sites
A couple of our directors have asked about having Macbooks instead of pc's.
If we did get a Macbook running the latest OS, would I need to do anything to my domain \ network to allow the Macbook to connect and authenticate from AD - share and edit files from the network drives (NTFS).
I would want users to be authenticated from our 2008 Active directory, and use full microsoft office (for compatibility with other office users)
Also how will a Macbook effect load of the exchange and servers (is it the same as a PC)
And finally are the any other things that I will need to look out for.
Thanks in advance
