What’s best for Office 2007: Virtual XP or real Vista?

You know what? Office 2007 is more usable on my MacBook Pro under Windows XP via Parallels Desktop than it is on my Vista Beta 2 test machine with Aero Glass on.

MacBook (VM environment for XP)

Vista machine


Intel Core Duo 1.83ghz

Athlon XP 2600+


1.5 gb (512mb)



ATI X1600?

Nvidia FX5500 64mb

What’s it mean? Well, maybe instead of buying a new PC for your next computer, you should get an Intel-based Mac and just run Windows XP on it. Just a thought.
