My big Question is if there someone who been working enough time with XP over macbook. I have a freind who bought macbook pro 15" and helped him install the bootcamp with XP. I didn't had much time to work on the macbook with the XP, but i noticed in the little time i had with it that Windows get freezes for example when I entered the display properties...

I use WinXP both through Boot Camp and through Parallels. I've experienced no real problems with either. I use the Boot Camp installation for playing games (Parallels does not support Direct3D), and I use the Parallels virtual machine to run IE (for sites that require ActiveX) and legacy WinXP apps that I haven't converted yet.
QUOTE Thanks
