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.

This won't likely work since the loader is still built with the PC/AT BIOS in mind.

GRUB works with EFI.

The only versions of Windows built for EFI (besides Vista) run on the Itanium. EFI support will not be backported to 32-bit versions of XP.

GRUB loads Windows.

There's also the previously mentioned possibility of using Virtual PC or some other similar technology.

I like that a whole lot better than dual booting.
