heard too many horror stories about it already. /scared
I was going to do a reformat / reinstall of a pc anyway so I tried it out.
I've seen pics of people runnning it on a macbook, too.
running with bootcamp?
As far as I could tell, yes.
I ran it on my PC rig but was underwhelmed. It definetly isn't a retail release, but if the beta is even 50% of what the retail version has to offer, my next computer purchase will be another Mac.
why wouldn't it be, you could run both OSes either way on a mac
macs aren't cheap
I'm running it on my desktop. It's fine I can't see any improvements over XP other than the improved GUI and the addition of media center
on your iMac?
apple notebooks are definitely price-competitive, don't believe the hype:
"Munster has found that while most people's conception of Macintoshes is that they command a 20 to 30 percent price margin over equivalent PCs, analysis of the new Intel-based Mac hardware shows that the actual price premium is much less: only 13 percent for desktops (well, iMacs, since the PowerMacs haven't transitioned yet) and 10 percent for laptops. This is a pretty reasonable margin, and certainly shows that Apple has come a long way from the company that once made more than 50 percent profit on both the Apple ][ and Macintosh lines."
I'm actually running it on my A64 machine I built myself; i'm getting ready to get a macbook (I know it's not as good as you MBP, stfu) and will try Vista with bootcamp. I think it should work
I'm running it on a MacBook, I'm not having any major problems.
Both BootCamp and Vista are betas, so I take both with a grain of salt when it comes to problems and surprises.
Vista screwed up my mac mini
the details are blowing my mind.
yrly we need details
I was running the Beta 2 installer and it froze about 15 minutes into it. So after restarting the mini, it wouldn't boot and wouldn't recognize my wireless keyboard so I couldn't force boot into OS X (I ended up buying an apple keyboard and got it booted). I reformatted the NTFS partition and don't plan on trying Vista again on any Apple hardware.
