The short info:
You will need to use a Virtual type of machine.
I'm using "wmware fusion" than installed Vista (32) Ultimate ( have no license for Windows 7).

Than it works great on my MacBook Pro 13" Aluminium
2.26 Ghz, HD upgraded to 320G, RAM 2GB (will need more later).

As my old laptop begun to crash, had to find a solution for my "mobile" development machine ...

I can say I'm surprised with the speed and adding more RAM later should help a lot.

You can even make dual-boot, but I like it this way using best of both OS :-)

Agreed. I am using macbook (2008) with upgraded to 4gb running vmware fusion and windows xp, works great. If you have budget upgrade the hdd to SSD even better performance. :-)

Now im up to 4G works even faster.
SSD are great but still high at price compared to size ....

I have to verify that it worked great , but there are some problems with graphics when using
windows 7 (32) the wmvare could not 100% when using "aero" ...
I think if you disable "aero" then no problem can be used even for production with CCS4.

However I decided to partition my HD 50% of 320GB, an half for windows 7 .
I installed a 64 bit version as I plan later to use all 8GB of RAM ...

Using a "bootcamp" have done this and now there is a "pure" windows 7 , 64-bit.
There was no problem's with drivers using a "bootcamp" ...
I do prefer this second option for using MacBook Pro in development for production with CCS4.
Now using 6GB of RAM (2+4) ...
Hope this helps anyone how is thinking using MBP for development ...

Hi, i can just confirm and recommend:
8GB RAM and Intel X25-M G2 160GB SSD.
Everything is very, very fast , it's a real enjoyment using CCS4 in this environment :-)
Using Dual Boot, Windows 7 Ultimate. (great XP mode ... )

Recommend to all MacBook Pro users using CCS4 for production development.

Cu!
