    What should I install on it, Windows XP, Windows 2K3 Standard, or Windows 2K3 Ent :o

    i only need OSX to do testing so I don't want to really waste the entire laptop

    Google + 2 seconds, and you would know that XP Pro SP2 is the only version of windoze you can install.

    I'd consider buying a MacBook cuz I love learning about different types of computers and what not, but I'm afraid most of my software would not work on it....I've been a windows dude for too long now.
