Lot’s of discussion and debate surrounding Apple’s beta of Boot Camp, which allows dual booting of Windows and OS X on the new Intel-based Macs. There are many opinions from people way smarter than I am, but here’s a pragmatic and personal example. I need to buy a new laptop to run a specialized application that captures video through via a USB device. This particular application runs only on Windows, and I will only need to run it on rare occasions: perhaps once a month. I’d prefer not to travel with both my Power Book and a Windows laptop, so as Doc Searls suggests, Boot Camp and a new MacBook Pro might fit the bill just fine.
