02-15-2006, 08:33 PM #1Joey SarksGuestSince I'm about to spend 3 grand, someone clear this up for me please.....
I need a laptop soon here. If I buy a macbook pro in a month, will I be able to run my audio software (Serato Scratch Live and Ableton Live, whatever else) or will I have to wait months or a year to run them? Cuz my SSL came with a pc and mac version...but with the intel chips does that mean I cant run either of them on it until a new version comes out? Or whats goin on this switch is confusing the heck outta me. I dont wanna have to buy a new version of SSL before I can use it, plus I dont wanna have to buy an Alienware or Vaio until the switch is complete either. All I know is im sick of PCs and want a mac, but can I get the macbook now or do I have to get a pc notebook for at least a year, then sling that on ebay and get the MBP? Thanks for whoever helps clear this up, much appreciated!

You will have to get a universal application to run it on the intel macs, unless it is not overly processor intensive it can run through rosetta for the time being.
Enjoy the macbook pro.. it looks like an amazing laptop!

And just for the record, just because Apple is now using Intel chips, it doesn't mean that you are going to be able to run Windows apps natively under OS X.
The type of processing chip used has nothing to do with it.
Mac software is still made for Macs, and Windows software is still made for Windows.

Your stuff won't run overly fast under Rosetta but it *will* run just fine. Just as a side note, you may want to hold off on buying a Macbook Pro until you've actually used one. They get *super* hot under your left wrist while typing on them, to the point of being unuseable for me...I won't be getting one for that reason alone.Roger Michaels

Im not worried bout stuff like that, I can take the heat. I only handle it for a few seconds at a time anyways when im picking my next track to spin. It would be a dedicated laptop, I wouldnt use it to get online or type essays or nothing like that.
