Partly true, 10.5 will have Conroe and Merom with the VT (virtualization technology) that allows any x86 OS to be run at the same time in the backround. This will basically allow Mac OSX and Windows XP/Windows Vista to run flawlessly next to eachother.

Hmmm Dell or Mac... sort of like a gallows or fireing squad sort of question

Personally i'd keep my dignity and get neither.
Right ... because you don't even own either one and therefore you can judge both companies. There isn't a PC notebook that can match the Macbook Pro's specs and price.

2. Microsoft and Apple are NOT making a Windows for Macs; you have to have the copy of Windows, device drivers, and no support is provided past support for Boot Camp.
Either your wrong, or this is wrong.....

No offense, but I think I'll go with the official website.

True, that was my bad. But Apple and Microsoft are not joining forces and making a special version of Windows.
