Fellow enthusiasts,I am in the process of getting a laptop but I am looking specifically at the MAC BOOK PRO 17" since it has the capability of running both operating systems and it appears to have the necessary hardware to FS9 and FSX (http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MB766LL/A?mco=MTkzOTI1MA). Are there any users in the forum who have gone this route, and what are the expected results/thoughts if any.Simeon

If you do go the Mac route, know this:All your drivers have to come from Apple, even the Windows drivers. This means compatibility first, performance a distant second.You will pay significantly more than a "gaming" laptop from a Windows-exclusive OEM. Gateway was selling mobile Geforce 8800/Core 2 Duo-powered laptops earlier this year for little over a thousand dollars. You can't even get that kind of graphics performance in a Mac, let alone for that kind of money.
