Apple "Today Apple announced the MacBook Pro. It has quite a few changes compared to the previous PowerBook. For one, it uses an Intel Core Duo (formally known as Yonah) chip. This is a dual core processor and no, unlike what Steve Jobs stated, this does not have two processors. This will help a lot with responsiveness. I've been dreaming of a dual core laptop for quite a while. However, the realization of my dream coupled with the changes seen makes me cry", writes Unsanity. UPDATE: Windows XP won't run on the new Intel Macs because of EFI. Vista is supposed to work though.

You might not need dualbooting.
if microsoft is smart (and I hope they are) they already have virtual PC in testing for the intel macs. This means that you COULD run windows in VPC with a smaller performance hit (when compared to emulation).

I sincerely hope that they have VPC coming out soon!
