    Current Issues:
    Video Resolution is at 1280x1024 (Want to run 1680x1050).
    WiFi doesnt work (Intel Chipsets aren't 100% developed yet)

    Other than that... I just gotta install FireFox, and Office 2004 for Mac... :)

    So you've taken something very useful and removed 90% of its functionality?

    WHat do you guys have against macs? The fact that they work? Dont require drivers and updates every 14 days? The fact that I can run 10 programs at once without it flinching? Or maybe that I can open up a 2mb PDF in under 2 seconds?

    Dont playa hate... Participate...

    I hate the fact that 80ish% of apps don't support mac. So you cut your functionality alot.

    If you are video editing, fine. Otherwise, use a PC.

    See... PC Hardware > Mac Hardware... But Mac Software > PC Software... So i have the best of both worlds... :D

    And I agree on the software front... which is why... DUAL BOOT FTMFW!!!

    (Not to mention im trying to prove that OSX will work functionally with our company to get the company to start buying a few MacBooks... 1 of which for me... :) )

    i've saidd it once, and i'll say it again.

    the only thing good about apple is their stock..... and frankly, its too late to jump on that too IMO. 3 months ago, it was 70 bucks... now its 155. i don't see it moving too much more than that

    Its an OSX install using the Darwin Bootloader.

    And I have to wipe the whole thign... Not because of OSX... Because hal.dll has gone corrupt on the XP partition... :(

    I need my 500gb hard drive back so i can backup all my crap, then just wipe the whole thing clean & start over.
