    i've read about boot camp. i develop primarily for windows and web/internet explorer. .net etc and sometimes java, j2ee etc...

    so when i found out about boot camp my thoughts were like this...

    "holy shit... good machine. good hardware. cross platform mac(which includes a unix) AND real, non emulated windows. my next machine should be a mac even if i use windows 90% of the time simply for the cross platform power."

    discuss! is this as good as i think this is?

    also, any plans to have mac OS run on windows machines?

    Most sane people agree that it's very unlikely that Apple would condone Mac OS on non-Apple hardware.

    It sounds like a good cross-platform machine, but I personally would hold out another six months before buying a new machine... It usually takes a while for the kinks to get worked out of the new toys.

    I don't think Apple will bring out OS/X for an x86 machine anytime soon but you can always check out the OSX86 project if you want the lesser option.
