Well I did some reading today on the macrumors.com forums and there are a ton of posts on there saying that the new MBP's install DVD has drivers for Vista 64 bit (boot camp 2.0.3). There are a couple people that say it works, anyone have any more or official links?

All I know for certain is that there are 64-bit drivers for the Mac Pros that were released in January. It's possible that the latest machines may have 64-bit drivers, but I guess somebody will either have to confirm or directly contact Apple about it (though I'm not sure if you'll get a straight answer)

Hmmm... might have to give it a try with my new Penryn MBP. Of course, I only have 2GB of memory, so it's not like it would make a difference.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
