The business side of my life needs a Windows machine; the personal-interest (art, music) would benefit from a Mac. I’m thinking of getting a Macbook Pro. But I absolutely have to know that Bootcamp will run my Windows applications as smoothly as a true Windows machine would.
I’ll be running things like SPSS, Access, Quickbooks, etc., not just the common suite of Office products (Word, PowerPoint and Excel).
My assumption is that most people don’t by a Mac knowing that probably 75% of the time they will be running Windows apps, so I just wanted to hear from anyone who extensively used this feature about whether it would be a good idea for me to go this route.
