    Using Win7 and XP in Parallels and everything runs smoking fast I used a PC for many years and made the switch years ago, have not looked back since.

    I'll confirm this for you, I use win7 under bootcamp as well with no problems.

    Even though, I haven't used it much, when I do everything works just like it should.

    The MacBooks are also great, but I don't like OSX that much, it looks like a kids operating system, all those animated icons and stuff, I really don't need that, and my main problem would be all those Windows only programs that I have to use, which I can't run on OSX, I know it can run Windows, but how well does that work for a computer that is not made for it?
    Buy an HP or Dell with Win7 64bit. You'll be just fine.

    Whether it's officially supported or not, Windows 7 works just fine on Boot Camp using the 3.0 drivers. I've had no issues whatsoever. Virtually anything that works with Vista will work with 7, since they share the same 6.x kernel.

    It's because Apple is the immature loser who can't do anything except bash the competition, like Pepsi used to do for years and years against Coca-Cola.

    If I would get another Mac now, I'd go for the 27-inch Quad-Core iMac. It costs $1999, but that's with a 2560 x 1440 27 inch screen. It's probably the most cost efficient Mac that ever has been manufactured.

    I don't know if there are any tests for Windows 7, but here's a thread I came across comparing how Vista runs on Macs compared with how Vista runs on other PCs:

    Not exclusively, no. Anyone can use them.

    Not to mention that all the same "designing" software is available on Windows, too.

    Why.

    Give one explanation why.

    Photoshop, illustrator .... ect... it's all software. That is what we use. The OS has nothing to do with it.

    If I could use those on Ubuntu I wouldn't use OSX or Windows.
