    i understand...i'm really trying to convince myself that $800 for the dual core mac mini is worth it, cause i'll get 2 systems in 1...
    maybe this summer :hs:

    wow i'm very impressed especially since they include all of the drivers which were unavailable with the other solution (only had some)

    i have absolutely 0 use for this, but hopefully it encourages some more switchers.

    everything i need software-wise is available for OS X in a better form or at least an equivalent.

    get that shit out my face!

    i'm waiting for someone to bitch about xp and osx and how they wouldn't want one over the other...come on...i'm waiting, oh wait, just check out the multiple other links in the main forum
    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2453699
    found it:
    i like this idea alot, having xp and osx is a dream for me, because i love osx, but i have all windows programs. i know that they're were solutions in the past for running a virtual machine, but it just wasn't up to par compared to this. all the nah sayers are stupid and stuck in they're ways

    BTW... this announcement raised Apple stock over 8% today... I think the market views this as a great move.
